    Hey Xvart,

    Ya I just pour the water into all of the pots and it ends up draining into the LFS. The funny thing is that this terrarium is obviously inside, yet my LFS is sprouting tons of little unknown weeds / plants, so there must have been tons of hitchhikers in my supply of dried LFS, but I actually kind of like it because it adds some of that "natural" feel that I'm going for with my terrarium.

    I've had much success with those clamp on lights with 100w CFL bulbs in them, but they have a much more limited area of coverage.

    I have that exact tank that I'm temperalily using as a terrarium. Its the one for reptiles that comes with a mesh screen and a slidding top right?

    I removed the screen and cut a plexiglass panel and then glued it to th eslidding frame so that I have a top that closes but still lets light though. Also allowing humidity to build up. It works great allowing humidity to stay in the 80's and 90's.

    converted aquariums are the answer haha, I'm using a 20 gallon right now for my plants I flipped it on its side however so that I get more horizontal use than I would if I just used it with the open top facing up. which allows for the lights to be closer and more space for cp's the glass in between also keeps my CFLS from overheating the tank. I put in a 4 inch fan and I use shrink wrap over the front so I have easy access and can see through all the time. it keeps humidity and temps up and where I need them. about 80 degrees and 85% humidity in the daytime... I need a bigger tank though
