Only wish I had discovered these sooner. The VE 23s are perfect for my new babies to grow into and with the prices how can I resist getting more.

Love these VE-2's
I have 13 of these now. Plan on getting 3 more. Stack them 4 high. They're right when they say stacking 5 or more high puts a bind on your bottom tubs. So I'm going for 4 rows of 4 high.. These are great!

These racks rock!
This is my 4th one. I only buy reptile basics cuz they're stackable. And when you stack them, they fit so perfect that it looks like one big rack. Will always only continue to buy these....always.

Have bought 3 of these, so far. And plan to buy a lot more. They're perfect. Tubs are super nice and sturdy. I've only bought the 23qt tubs so far. They stack perfectly. Heat tape installed. Just plug and go. I will always keep buying these for life.

Can’t beat this
The VE-2 is so worth the money. Everything that a PVC rack should be is in this. The boxes are top notch, the heat tape is top notch, even the routing for the thermostat sensor is done so there is some strain relief. And the ability to use 3 different size boxes makes it so useful.

Vivarium Electronics VE-2
This is my first rack. And they are awesomely made. You don't have to do anything to them. Just hook up your thermostat. Plug it in and go.
Now, about the shipping. Nothing to worry about. They pack it in a tough thick box and styrofoam the corners and sides. And not that cheap white styrofoam either. It's some good styrofoam. So the point is, in transit, this thing could fall off a truck at 70mph and nothing will happen to it.
But the rack itself is great. I ordered the largest tubs. Which right now is a little too big for my BP's. But they will grow into it.
So overall this is a great buy.

Excellent Rack
Very fast building and shipping time as compared to other companies.
Rack feels very high quality and came together already built with heat tape installed.
Highly recommend Reptile Basics if you're looking for a very good quality rack system for a good price.

Awesome rack
We purchased this rack for our first two ball pythons when we couldn't get the temps and humidity right in an aquarium. We have now had the VE-2 rack for almost 3 months. We fell in love with the hobby and ended up purchasing the VE-6 as well as our collection grows! The rack is reliable, consistent and very well built. Fast service, excellent quality, and helpful customer service. I can't say enough good things about Reptile Basics.

Great rack for new snake keepers
Bought this rack for keeping corn snakes. Both my snakes and I couldn't be happier with it. Looks and works great. Locking pins for tubs are a nice touch you don't find else where. Rack was delivered promptly and in good condition packaged well. Customer service is also very good. Over all couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
