    Idea for a Lowland Chamber

    Well, my 30 gallon highland chamber is about to become empty, as i am setting up a highland growrack, more info on that when its complete, so heres this. i need to know if it will work
    i am planning on doing it as a potted terrarium. Peat and LFS for about 3-4" of the media, planning on using a small Bical, Ampullaria, and maybe Albomarginata, The lights would either be 1 or 2 fluorescent fixtures, heating would be an undertank heater, probably the reptile pads, and they would really only need to be used at night, in the center of the terrarium, i plan to have a container of water, say a ziploc tupperware container, with a submerged fogger, most likely the Exoterra kind, as a friend of mine uses them in his Dart Frog vivarrium, and it is amazing.

    I don't see why not. You'll have very high humidity and lights seem fine (I'm not sure though, not a light knowing person). Though, plans on ventilation? Will there be an open holes somewhere or a fan? Other than that, I'm sure it'll work.

    Lowlanders like it hot and muggy, i might put a hole in the top of the terrarium and a small computer fan or something in there.

    Looks good. The fogger isn't necesarry as long as there's standing water somewhere in the tank.

    I know what you mean. I used to really want a ultrasonic fogger.

    You might wanna shop around a bit, cause some are really flakey. Find a nice brand with cheap refills (the membranes) cause costs will add up.

    Good luck w/ your setup!
