  1. General Discussion
    Hello! After searching through threads on this awesome forum I still have a few questions (please let me know if I missed a good thread). I'll be using an egg crate false bottom, screen, soaked Turface, and then inches of leaf litter for the setup (really liked this with my current setup)...

    Hi All, This is my first post as I am new to your community. I have read tons of posts and spent hours going down the internet rabbit hole that is vivarium lighting. I am currently working on a new pallarium build in an old 29 gallon high tank (24 "x 12" x 16") I had lying around the garage...
  3. Tree frogs
    Hi! I'm designing my first vivarium to set up for a couple dumpy tree frogs and was wondering if placing my grow light on the side of the tank was acceptable. This grow light is actually a Finnex Planted+24/7 that I used for an old tank of mine. It is too long to go on the top of my tank, so I...

    Making my second viv and need to figure out the lighting. For my first viv (exo terra 12x12x18) I just went with compact top and a jungle dawn led - pretty straightforward. With a 20 gallon tall there's more to look into. Anyone have any budget LED options? Everything I see posted here is $100+...

    I'm looking for an LED light to put on a 24" cubed tank. I've boiled it down to a spectral design LED system and the Fluval Plant 3.0 system. Both have a mix of R/B and white LEDs. I like the control feature of the Fluval as it allows you to customize the blend of light spectrum to the viewers...

    Has anyone used the Fluval Plant Spectrum 3.0 LED for their viv's. I'm building a 24" x 24" x 24" cube and am very attracted to the bluetooth feature and capabilities that it has (i.e. the gradual change from day/night, ability to control the color spectrum [R/B specific]). I was also looking at...

    I'm putting this question out there because I have not found the right thread asking this important question with a relevant date. If you know of one already existing please feel free to direct me. Over the past years 24/7 light cycles LEDs have been introduced to the market with great demand...

    I'm thinking about getting one of these led flood lights for my new 20G High vertical tank, but which of the three options from 15W, 30W, or 60W would be best for my size of tank?
  9. Beginner Discussion
    I'm trying to figure out the lighting aspect of my vivarium build and I checked out the Lighting 101 thread and some of the links it contained, but I'm still looking for some guidance. Color temperature seems to be one of the biggest considerations, so I know to look at that when I'm checking...

    Hey everyone! :D First post!! Guess its official now!! This is my first terrarium / Vivarium build ever... Had a few questions on lighting and discovered I needed to post twice here before I could post anywhere else. :rolleyes: but I understand... The tank is going to be 28x28x36(high) living...
