    Hi all.. I finished my move to the states a while ago, and both of my terrariums were *broken* in shipment from Japan (and not insured [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] )... I'm trying to find something to replace them. If anyone has some, or knows where to get them please let me know. I'm looking for 90cm long ones because I already have lights of that length. I have looked around where I live, second hand shops, and places like that but they don't have anything suitable. If anyone has any tips, or something they want to sell on the cheap even, please let me know..

    Thanks

    Pat

    I moved from Okinawa, Japan to Puyallup, Washington (sorta near Seattle). Pretty silly name, huh?

    I have tons of lowland plants, and still have some highland plants, so I'm not really looking for any more plants, just a way to take care of them. The lowland plants are probably coming back sometime in January, so I need to get organized before then. Worst comes to worst, I can try and buy them at PetSmart.. The kind I am looking at run about $80 each though unfortunately.

    You might want to try scouring you neighborhood. I found a 75 gallon tank on the street that someone was throwing out! I think free is the best deal you can find. Also, If you are pressed for time, and your plants aren't too big, you can make terrariums out of clear plastic jugs. I just used an Utz pretzel jug for one myself.

    Ooh. Sounds cool. What about lighting? Windowsill? Or a mini light?
    Just curious. Great idea, btw.
