    I found out that i am 2 lazy to build the background again from nothing,
    so i used my old terrarium background
    I still need to fix it so it will look better+ need 2 add few plants and some moss.
    well the terrarium is sort of finished.
    I had 2 seal the terrarium (it made of Polystyrene) so i wont have water leaks from the bottom.




    here is the background(currently look like crap- but it will chenge,i might redo the all thing)

    )





    things to do
    1.misting sytem
    2.pump for the waterfall+filter(takes the watre from the bottom of the terrarium-around 10 cm of water(Hight))
    the water also help to keep temps and humidty
    3.add few fans for air flow
    4.new plants for the background(also fixing it )
    5.add the rajah

    Great stuff?

    Instead of having the cooling plate on the foam, maybe you could cut into it and put the plate against the wall? I think it would look much better that way.

    sorry for nopottingng sooner(got married ....sdidn'tnt have time)
    currently finished adding the misting systmonsoonson RS400 working every hour for 60 sec)
