DIY Breeder Box

  1. jbdub Member Member

    This has probably been brought up before but have people tried making their own breeder boxes?

    Surely a sizeable clear tuperware box with some DIY done to it could do a great job?

    I bring it up because the store bought one I have is a bit small and I really don't see anything about it that I couldn't do myself. My only concern is the materials used in making certain tupaware boxes but you'd think it's just hard plastic.

    Generally speaking, if it's food safe it should be ok.

    I don't know about making one, but I'll be watching this thread because I recently stepped on mine...

    There are different kinds of recycled plastic. Inside the recycling logo there is a number- if it's 3 or 7 it will leak harmful compounds into the water. That's about as much as I can help you.
