Thank you everybody!
Pete, the first picture minus plants is the reptile tank as I bought it.
Then I just added the layout with levels using egg-crate and some glassware from dollar store.

Looks awesome, orchideya. Do you glue the egg crate around the vases? Also, how do you cut the edges so neatly?

Thank you Silvi and Rangiku.
Rangiku, I cut egg-crate with pliers that usually used to cut wires, just choose the line of squares and cut the side of each one, after that trim the edges to make it look neat.
I don't glue egg-crate, I just simply tie the vertical egg-crate sides to the actual egg-crate shelf with fishing line in several places. It is invisible but holds the shelf together even when I need to take everything out to clean the tank.

Thank you OrchidTess and Penangirl.
Yes, my tank came with two glass shelves in place.
I got it from here:
http://devanaturespirit.ca/prodisp.php? ... &pageind=1
but it is in Canada and for pick up only.
On the other forum in my thread about tank somebody posted a link to the producer of similar stuff in USA and it looks like they offer shipping:
http://www.glasscages.com/

Hope it helps.
