    highland terrarium question

    so basically at nights my terrarium gets down to the mid 60s
    but i heard Rajah likes it in the 50s.
    so i moved my entire terrarium over to my window which i pretty much always leave opened, took off the mylar on the backside so it gets some sun from there
    not too much sun as its a west window and there are 2 big pines in the way.
    but i figured the cold air coming into the window might help cool it down more as the back of the terrarium is very close to the window.
    on average the day temps are mid 70s to the low 80s
    nights usually got to mid to upper 60s
    i personally love the cold, so the open window is no problem. but do you think it will help?
    Here is the Rajah
    it looks a bit bleh right now
    hopefully it recovers nicely

    and here is the terrarium now.

    I thought like villosa, rajah likes 40's. I'm also having trouble cooling it under 60 at night.

    In Atlanta, it is hard to get night temps under 75f in the summer. Once I move into my dorm room at UGA, I will set up a lowland terrerium in a 150 gallon tank I got for my birthday. I got a single person room that is fairly large (for a dorm), so I think I can pull it off.

    I think that it might be able to cool it down a little bit. It kind of depends because you can always try putting it on the floor where air is the coldest, but having cold air flowing in at the terrarium might do it. Though, why did you mention what I think is what wisdom teeth can do when this is a thread on you N. rajah?
