Solid product from a solid company
I ordered two VE-6 racks, twelve tubs, and casters from RBI. RBI has the best value especially with free ground shipping if your purchase qualifies ($100 I think it is). The racks are solid and are easy to put together. The square driver bit needed for the screws is even included along with more than enough screws. The caster kit is an essential for the rack closest to the floor.

Every time buy from RBI, I'm a happy camper. They ship quickly, the products are sound and quality, and the customer service is amazing.

Solid rack no totes
Got my rack in today, and I got to say it's a solid rack. Took me a little longer to put together, in my opinion the instructions not all that great. Had more problems getting the heat tape snaked though, (you can use both sides of the heat tape) but not a big deal. I'd say 4.5 stars, but now the issue is that they are out of totes and I've been waiting about two weeks to get a notification of new ones. If you guys are going to make a rack that only allows your totes to be used, plz keep them in stock it says on your website you own the mold. There should never be a time that you are out of totes, what good is a rack with nothing to put in them. I understand you want people to buy your stuff. that's business right? I digress and maybe give a little more space in the threm. Groove I have like 15 therms. From other projects all and all I'm decently happy with the rack. until I look at a 250 dollar nightstand setting beside my PC because I have nothing to put my snakes inside it and worried that my therm. Probe sticks up a 16th of an inch that my rub the heat tape. So over all 3 stars more then willing to re rate once I can grab some totes from you guys.

Fantastic Flexibility
I purchased 2 of these the first time to see how they would work for me. They were so great that I ordered 2 more and plan to order more as my collection grows. Super clean look and only took 20 minutes each to put together. Just wish they had the VE108-8 QT tubs available so I could get rid of my old hatchling system. Would recommend these to anyone and cant wait for the Super 70 5 tub racks to become available.

Awesome Racks
I just got these in over the weekend and got them put together today. Couldn't be happier. I am not a super handy person, and even I was able to put these together in about 20 minutes per rack. I love that they can accommodate three different sizes of tubs.

Highly recommend.

Nice rack!
This is a great rack and was perfect for what I needed. I keep hognose, rosy boas, and leopard geckos. The racks tub versatility is perfect for hatchling size to adult animals. It also cut the space needed to house my animals way down compared to my previous setup.

Very good quality! Easy to assemble.
I order 4 racks total. I am very pleased with the quality. I had all 4 assembled in a little over 2 hours including installing the heat tape. They stack very nice and hold heat and humidity very well. With the vivarium thermostat the temp ranges less than 1 degree from the top to bottom tubs. Reptile basics communication was great. I will order more from reptile basics in the future. I have 100% trust that they stand behind what they sell and respond quickly to questions.

What a great rack!
For the price you can't beat these racks. It has exceeded all my expectations. I bought to be a quarantine rack, but I liked so much I use it for my hognoses. I own. A few C Serpent racks and. A lot of ARS racks this rack is on par. Don't let the price fool you.

My rack system of choice!
I've used a lot of different rack systems over the years, but I have to say that the Vivarium Electronics VE-6 has quickly become my new favorite. The flexibility it offers is unmatched, and the build quality and materials used are both very high quality. Not to mention how quickly they are built and shipped. I've ordered 3 of these so far, and each of them has arrived in less than 2 weeks from the time I placed the order. All in all, I could not be happier with the VE-6. It's everything I've ever wanted in a rack system, and I see myself purchasing many more of these in the future.

Great Rack!
I'm new to the ball python hobby and I searched and researched many of the racks available on the Internet as well as the local reptile shows. I have to tell you, this is by far the best build rack I've come across. The workmanship is flawless. It's very well built and having the ability to use various sized tubs is a great benefit. I will definitely be ordering another one of these bad boys very soon. Maybe today...

I've ordered many items from Reptile Basics and their quality and customer service is second to none.

Thanks Reptile Basics!

VE-6 Rack
This rack is amazing. It is very sturdy and the tubs slide in and out very smoothly. The ability to us 3 different size tubs is great. It allows you to keep various size snakes in the same rack. I would definitely recommend.
