    They are. However I've only ever seen all 6 at once a couple of times. Most of the times I see 3-4 and the others are hiding.

    It's a real treat when I get a view of all of them.

    As promised, here is an update. Sorry for the less than stellar pics. I used my phone. Also it just misted so the ventilation fans didn't have enough time to clear up the front glass.

    Finishing trim, and covers for the lights and equipment area built and installed.

    I notched out an opening on the left and right sides of the trim to allow the front glass to slide in and out.

    The light and equipment covers are vented and held in place by cabinetry magnets.

    The view from walking up and down the stairs. A great view when starting my mornings and ending my day.

    I know it's pretty early for a Christmas tree, but the family bought a new one this year and we were testing it out.

    This is one of the most beautiful vivariums I have ever seen photos of. Something to aspire to building one day.
