Don't worry, I'm sure your co-workers will love your new pets, and if they don't tell them you're trying a new escargot substitute.


I love your Ikea glass cabinet and would love to have one. it is exactly what I need for my mounts. To the best of my knowledge, there is not an Ikea near me.

When you mist, does the extra water collect in the basket on the bottom? Do you mist by hand? What is the size of it?
There is a plastic tub in the bottom. I taped (with electrical tape) pieces of shower curtain to the glass near the bottom, and the curtain hangs into the tub, directing water that way. There are dirt plants in the so they automatically get watered. I am lazy about watering......

Case measurements are here.

Width: 16 3/4 "
Depth: 14 3/8 "
Height: 64 1/8 "

Width: 43 cm
Depth: 37 cm
Height: 163 cm

It's nice to have a tall case, but lighting is an issue. No way to light from above so the shoplights are mounted vertically off to the right.
