    Great looking setup. Very very nice. Not heavy as a tank....but still nice and localized.

    Thanks yeah, i've been pretty happy with it, it's fairly modular so i can mess with stuff... i've gone through my fair share of aquariums/reptile tanks

    That's probably going to be the next setup for me too. Tanks have their pain to deal with.

    What are the temps like in the upper and lower sections? I've got a 400w MH and a 400w HPS here, both of which put off a tremendous amount of heat. And I hear the 600w bulbs put out a considerable amount more than the 400s. Just curious how well that cold plate counteracts the heat. Is this also a basement setup?

    So the hygrotherm sensor is on the top shelf and it's set to cool during the day at 75, then its set to drop to 60 at night. The lower area probably stays 5 lower on average. One of the cooler fans is on full time for air circulation, and the humidifier (goes on below 70%) does a decent job circulating air also. I'm thinking about adding another full time circulation fan that would blow more up/down.

    Yeah, there is a lot of heat involved. The hood has glass on the bottom and ventilation holes. The top of the terrarium is a piece of 16mm double wall vinyl greenhouse panel. It is in my basement and the temps in there stay below 85ish in the summer.
