    Hey, so I'm planning my first viv and was just reading the great advice in this thread: https://www.dendroboard.com/forum/beginner-discussion/90220-misting-beginners.html I'm planning on getting a custom glass top with an inch and a half or two inch gap in the back to screen for ventilation...

    Hi Dendroboard! I've been recently considering buying a grow tent to grow some vivarium-suited plants. I know I can get the kind of lights I'd need for growth, and I can probably make space for a rather large tent. I have had difficulty, however, in understanding all the things one needs to...

    I'm trying to figure out how wide I want to get a piece of glass for the top of an Exo Terra, and that relies on figuring out how wide a strip I want to make the ventilation screen. I have a screen window kit from ages ago, which looks like this: The problem with that is these corners...

    It's been a few years since I have worked on a larger tank, but I've finally got my hands on the tank I've wanted since I started in the hobby. It's a 95G corner aquarium. It's already been drilled at the bottom (it was previously a reef tank), so that makes my life easier. I'm planning a...

    Hello, everyone! I'm a newb in the PDF hobby, but have always been fascinated by tropical plants and frogs. After months of research, I converted a 29 gallon (long) aquarium into a vivarium with a ledge for hanging plants, a small pond, and a dribbling waterfall. However, I have no lid...

    Well I have been wanting to build a a nice show tank for awhile so figured I would pick a nice 24' cube aquarium. Im planning the build for either some Oophaga pumilio or a some kind of ranitomeya. The tank will be a 360 degree view so no background will be made. I picked out a really nice piece...

    Has anybody tried rubbing potato slices on the glass of their vivs to cut down on the amount of condensation you get? I've seen people do it with their car windows to some effect, and I figure it shouldn't be harmful to any darts that would come into contact with the juices.

    Hey I need some input, please. I'd like to install some PC fans in my vivarium for air circulation. I'd like them to mount facedown on the top glass lids. I want to do this kind of install to keep the fans from being visible inside the vivarium. I've been searching, but haven't found anything...

    Hi! I have been searching previous posts and I haven't had any luck so far. I am trying to figure out how to make a vivarium cover (for 20L and 29 aquariums). I have come to the conclusion that the best way for me right now would just be to get the living hinge material from NEHerp, cut...

    What's the maximum safe hole size in 3/16" glass for ventilation and how many can I have. Where should they be located in the lid? This is for a two piece 20 gallon high. Would a few 3/8" holes work or do I need to go bigger? Thank you!

    Hey Everyone, I am beginning to work on a 40 gallon breeder and am wondering what others have done to vent this size tank. Currently I am thinking about drilling 4-6 2" holes across the top for passive ventilation and two holes on the sides of the tank towards the front with one fan pushing...

    How do most of you go about replacing the screen top with glass? It's a 12x12x18 exo terra so the opening is about 11.25x11.25. I was going to go to Lowes and have them cut a piece of glass about 11.25x9.5 in order to leave some room for ventilation. My question is, how do you cover the vent to...

    i'm modeling a 45 bow front. how important is air flow? warm air rises. frogs will move the air. air is moved by changes in pressure. There will also be a stream that will move air. are the fans necessary?

    Hello, I have come up with a new method for under door ventilation that I would like to share with you all. The "Sherman vent" preforms the same way as the "Euro vent", it allows air to be drawn in under the doors preventing condensation. However, the Sherman vents vertical screen does not...

    Has anyone installed a fan to ventilate a R. Imitator tank? I'm trying to combat condensation, but don't want to compromise the humidity level. They're in a 20 gallon standard fish tank with a glass lid.

    Hey all, I'm new to the hobby and I had some questions I've been wanting to ask. I just built my first vivarium, (a 20H tank), and i was wondering what kind of lighting you would suggest. Currently I have an exo terra hood housing two 5000k cfl bulbs. Is this enough lighting? It's currently...

    This morning I found my two patricias dead in their QT set up. Tub with wet paper towels, + creeping fig + a petri dish with a portobello mushroom + spring tails. Any ideas as to why they would have died? They were eating and hoppin around yesterday.

    As the title implies I've been lurking here for some time. I stopped during the summer because I knew I would not have the time to build the set up I want. Anyways I have a few questions before I jump in (hoping to have the terrarium ready by the Reptile Show in LA Jan 10-11). 1. Can someone...
