Seems like my parents are sick of the lack of windowsill space...they have suggested I convert one of my 2 rat "cages" into a terrarium.
I'm not planning on this seriously, I do love them ratties and would like another someday. However, I do have 2 tanks.....
The tank has a mesh screen on one side and a removable glass lid on the other. The top that holds the lid and mesh to the glass sides is a very hard plastic, but saw-able. The whole top does not come off, just the glass lid section.
Do you believe that it would be possible to covert this into a plant terrarium without a ridiculous amount of work or money? I don't know if the lights would fit underneath the lids (melt/fire hazard?) or if I'd have to cut off the top (or just place it above). Any advice? And...don't mind the rat supplies in the pics!
The terrarium measures thusly:
Glass Lid and Screen:
10" x 10" each
Growlist (any or all can be put in there)
3 lowland neps - approx 5"w x 8"h *including pot
3 full-sized Mexican pings 3"w *x 4"h including pot
1 full-sized n.capensis 6"w x 12"h including pot ('cause it's flowering)
1 med-sized d. binata dichoforma 'giant' seedling 4"w x 6"h
2 full-sized vfts 5"w x 8"h including pot
6 pots of seedlings (drosera, vft, pings) 2" - 3" pots
Heh heh, it'll be a "ratty tank" the back pane has been broken (thanks to my dad) so there are cracks and it's been glued back together. Might have to put in some kind of background.
Thanks in advance,
