Default using stuff from est'd tank in new tank to set up microfauna


You know how people use rocks from an established healthy fish tank to set up the bacteria in a new fish tank quicker...can the same benefits be seen from using stuff from a healthy established terrarium in a new one (such as a piece of wood or substrate)?

Yes, it can be done. But it does carry the potential of transferring disease to new tanks. Be aware of that and act accordingly.
