We've re-done Talyn's terrarium. I was frustrated by the extra height. It made the whole thing difficult to heat and since she's only semi-arboreal, it wasn't worth all the trouble.
We had 16" cut off the glass sides and cut the same off the back and installed new front sliding glass doors. I painted a piece of styrofoam and placed it on the left side of the tank (outside) to help insulate the cage further and give her more privacy.
Now the cage is being heated by a 150 Watt Ceramic Heat Emitter on the right. We have a timer controlled thermostat (with probe) controlling max/min temps and day/night temps. And a timer for the lights (these can be seen in the first pic outside the terrarium on the table.)
We also have a thermometer/hygrometer with probe on the warm side, hide box, moist (moss) box, water dish and fake plants. On the cool side we have another water dish, another hide box and another thermometer. The substrate is terrarium soil (humus bricks)
I painted the back wall and added fake plants and branches for decoration.
Thanks for looking!
