Location of the terrarium
Think carefully before choosing the location for a terrarium, because after the installation of all decorative elements, the terrarium should not be moved. Choose a place where the temperature is stable between 20 ° C and 25 ° C. Ideal place with natural light, but not directly by the window or in places where the terrarium could overheat. Also avoid places where there are chemical or other fumes and where cigarette smoke occurs. After choosing a suitable place, you can begin installing the plants and other decorations.
Installation of electrical devices inside the terrarium
If you decide to install any electrical supplies such as heating stove, fog machine, waterfall and others inside the terrarium, all electrical devices must always be switched off – ejected from the electrical plugs. Select the appropriate place for the electrical equipment in the terrarium and route the cables to the rear of the terrarium. Close the ventilation grille and make sure there is no risk of escaping animals from the terrarium.
Installation of lighting
Only select lighting products that are recommended for terrariums, ideally Repti Planet products. The power of the light should be compatible with the pet and the tank size. Too high temperature can result in animal death and product degradation.
