    On big posterboard sheets at Michaels in the.. stationary section. You can probably get a roll on Ebay or a hydroponics supplier. Or you can buy a bunch of mylar balloons and cut them in half and put the inside of the ballon on the back of the terraria/shelf.


    Just getting creative. Or those sunlight deflectors for cars. Or thermal emergency blankets.

    There's a bit to be found in the Sea of Tranquility (Mare Tranquillitatis) on the Moon. At 0.8 N, 23.5 E (Statio Tranquillitatis) to be precise.

    Closer to home, try a hydroponics store.

    I actually found a roll of Mylar at party city listed as wrapping paper! It works just fine but it’s very very thin so it crinkles easily. I have also seen Mylar in aquarium stores as fish tank backing but its quiet expensive. The “wrapping paper” I got was very cheap at only $4.00
    By the way using it a wrapping paper doesn’t work very well, wrapping anything in it that isn’t perfectly flat with flawless edges results in it looking all wrinkled up with patterns of ripples going across the surface…

    When I search for "mylar" on ebay or amazon, I wind up with emergency blankets popping up. Am thinking of going to the local PX store and asking if they have those folded up blankets for hikers, etc. I'd like to see how thick it is if it's supposed to protect a stranded hiker.

    The size is still bigger than I need for my newly acquired 20 gallon long aquarium. -- If I'm lucky it will cover 3 sides on both my aquiriums.

    I am getting ready to grow a bunch of drosera and sarracenia seed!

    Yep, the cp bug has bit me!

    I use those emergency blankets. they are thinner than most mylar but still very reflective, also cheap and easy to find. just look in the camping section of most stores and you will find them.
