Assuming your collection is what it is and will not grow too large on you I would recommend using caging by Repti-Racks. They are economical to purchase and you can stack them easily enough. They hold humidity very well and you can easily heat them using belly heat i.e. flexwat or uth with a thermostat.

For cages, I personally use some from Vision, Repti-Racks, and some melamine type. They are all good and have their cons as well. It really just depends on the type of animals being housed.

The visions will not hold the humidity as much for you, the melamine types are great but heavy and can be costly unless you can find some used locally. The Repti-Racks may hold too much humidity and more air holes may need to be applied. They come completely fabricated though and are very light weight.

If your collection is going to grow as they tend to do then you may consider a rack.

Hope this helps a little. Best of luck!
