    Vistary, regarding the peltier cell plan, how much would u estimate that to cost? That is, the entire set-up, with the cell, fan etc. Looking for a solution for my VFT dormancy.

    the peltier cell set up is very much localised and will only be able to bring the temp down to say 20C; its not suitable for VFT dormancy which req about 12C; moreover peltier cells r very exp, a small one cost abt $100,
    Actually, the best way of cooling a terrarium is to either get one of those chillers for marine tanks abt $700 or to get a wine fridge with glass doors. =)

    Looks like I'll really have to consider getting a fridge... but as I've only 3 VFTs and 1 Sarracenia to put into dormancy, it would not really justify getting a fridge for that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I did see a wine chiller at about $200 at Suntec City a few mths back tho. Decent size, temp adjustable, could be worth consideration... after my exams though!

    It has a glass door, temp range from 4 -- 16 degrees C I think. It's at Carrefour.

    Well it's about the size of a bar fridge, so it's not really that big, esp for mature neps. Prob more so for VFTs dormancy.

    hello everyone,
    today i bought a 72 watt flouresant light set up, 6500K, "ballas" that means heatless and saves 30% of for $95 and a 2 ft x 1ft tank in lenght for $12. i bought these from an aquarium shop that guqin recomended. Now all i need is a humidity maker thing and a timer...
    what does a timer do?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"
