I think what you're asking has as much to do with personal taste as anything,along with how many you plan to keep, but I'll toss out what I have anyways.

BRB's for me are one of my most enjoyable animals for having displayed for me to see and because of that I will try to keep adults in larger glass front cages. Babies, subadults and the occasional adult if I want one out of a breeding group (or a female who's just given birth that I may be feeding a little more often for example) will all be in racks. I do keep a couple of tubs in one of my racks empty specifically specifically to use for feeding animals that are normally housed in community caging.


All my racks have belly or back heat to them, one of my larger display cages has belly heat in it, the others have radiant heat panels. Personally, I like the belly heat because even though the panels aren't as bad as heat lamps, I still feel like they flood a cage with heat more than a large piece of flexwatt under the cage floor...just a personal preference, I do have both, and both do work.

Obviously the number of animals kept will dictate how much space you can give to any of them, I don't see myself ever keeping more than 10-12 adult BRB's simply because I enjoy a variety of animals too much. I will probably end up with 4-6 display cages by the time I'm done for BRB's, along with a couple each for woma's and BHP's...that means a lot of space though.

One thing I do like with my large display type cages, is I also have an automated misting system hooked up to them. I don't know how well that would work with racks...it might work just fine other than needing more misting nozzles.

Good luck with it whichever way you decide to go!
Charlie
