I also say Good Job. Not sure what your dimensions are, but it looks like it may be long and wide enough based on your photos. I have heard of folks housing in adequate sized plastic tubs and metal cattle troughs. I would think anything of appropriate size that can provide the PROPER thermal gradients given to you in earlier posts would be OK. Get a temp gun, or at least a decent digital thermometer from Radioshack or similar place, and check your temps. If your ventilation is too much to get your temps up in the hot zone, or too much to keep them high enough on the cool side, then you can probably just cover the screened sides with wood or plexiglass on your existing cage. Proper thermal gradients are a must, not how nice your cage looks. I agree with Rosebuds about the hides. Snug and low to ground to give them security, and on the hot and cool sides of the cage.
