Drainage and Substrate trays are purchased separately. Your choice of drainage tray depends on your cage decoration strategy. The Large Keeper Screen Cage is compatible with the following Drainage Trays.

Large Cage Drainage Tray.The Large Cage Drainage Tray sits under the cage and collect excess water keeping it out of the enclosure and away from feces and escaped feeders. It is recommended that small 1/16” holes be drilled at regular intervals in the PVC enclosure floor (NOT in the drainage tray) to facilitate quick drainage into the drainage tray. The Large Cage Drainage Tray has a strong X pattern that the cage sits on to stay out of the waste water. This  supports the enclosure floor to handle the weight of potted plants.

Large Cage Drip Easy Drainage Tray.The ideal drainage solution for the Large Clearside Enclosure is the Large Drip Easy Drainage System. This system contains a screen panel floor to replace the standard white PVC floor included with the enclosure as well as a drainage tray. The screen floor allows mist water to flow directly through the floor and into the drainage tray. The screen floor also partners with the black drainage tray to mask that there is a floor giving your naturalistic set-ups a more attractive look.

Large Cage Substrate Tray.Substrate trays go inside the cage and provide a basin for a substrate that your interior design requires. Usually this is a layer of hydro balls covered with a fabric and soil on top. This substrate tray is water tight. If drainage is desired it can be used with the Large cage Drainage tray. When a drainage tray is used, drill small holes at regular intervals in the bottom of the substrate tray and your substrate will naturally drain allowing you to mist your enclosure without worry of saturating or flooding your substrate. With just the substrate tray you would use the standard PVC floor panel that came with the enclosure. When using the substrate tray with a drainage tray, the standard PVC floor panel is not required.
