Default Hygrolon Exo Terra Vivarium in progress

Hey,

I just wannt to share a bit of my new Vivarium where I experimented with Hygrolon. Its a 90x45x90 cm Exo Terra

It is still in progress and will be mainly planted with small orchids and mosses.
I am still uncertain if I put any frog's in the Tank

I try to update if i keep building!

Is the hygrolon on top of the white stuff? Or did you paste that media on the hygrolon? What is the white stuff by the way?

The white stuff is expanding foam and I just pinned the Hygrolon with metal clip's onto the foam background. I only used very little silicone on the edges!

I am now mostly done with the tank . The next step will be building the cover out of glass and install the misting system.

Hello,

I finally finished the glass cover and installed the misting system for testing.

I will have two 120mm fans blowing air inside the Vivarium. And I wonder if I need any additional holes (preferably not) for air to escape?
I will run the fans at a low setting.
Any thoughts are appreciated....thanks

If you put a small hole towards the bottom you could get some better air flow, even without the fans the heat from the lights will pull air up through the top vents if you give a lower one for it to come in through.



That seems like a lot of fan - but at a low setting and maybe on a timer it shouldn't get tooo dry I would think.

Unfortunately not. If everything gose as planned I can set up the tank next week.
I accidentally destroyed the glass cover and had to redo it.
I also ordered alot of orchids from a orchid nursery in Ecuador. The order will be delayed till the travel restrictions in Europe are lifted.....
