    New setup- phase 1 complete.

    So, I finally got that tank I've been tanking about for a while set up. I'm pretty pleased with it except for two things. It's taller than the one I planned to use, and it's EMPTY lol. I really need to set up a better rack system(for now I'm using my old tank INSIDE the new one) and probably get more lights, any comments would be appreciated. Now for pics!











    It looks dark, I've added a small strip light on top and it helps quite a bit.

    A stronger light is in order, I reckon.....a HO T5 suspended just above the tank will fix that problem.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Well, untill them I gues you can use the method you are currently using....but when you do get some more light.....then you will have all kinds of options.

    Ah....didn't see the window because of all the stuff in front of it.

    It gets about 4-6 hours of sunlight a day. I have a mesh fabric hanging in the window so I don't fry the terrarium, but it's doing well. If it weren't for that window I would have wrapped the whole thing up in mylar lol.

    Oooo, I envy the tank setup. I definitely want to get a 40 long for a lowland setup at some point. Tanks just make things so much simpler. Looking good, I hope it yields you lots of success!
