    Somebody (Draman) quoted you as the man for vivarium background builds so I thought I'd fire a quick question your way.
    I'm hoping to build a massive background and sides for a 6ft viv for a Bosc and have fallen at the first hurdle. I have sheets of polystyrene and some floor grout, whats the best way to get the grout to stick to the p.styrene. I've heard PVA, should this be on the p.styrene or mixed in with the grout?

    Hi, I was just wondering where you get the kingspan from? Is there a different name for it in the US? All I have been able to find so far, which I have used for all my other viv builds, has been polystyrene, but I really don't want that rough look, not to mention a million little squeaky pieces sticking to everything while working with it, lol. Thanks!

    Hello Sir Tom, I hope all is well and the weather aint to shitty in wales atm.

    I know i said previous about iv put in my T5 equip and that. Iv mount it at the front of the viv above the glass, shinning backwards into the viv. While iv been reading the forums tonight. I did see a post by you telling someone else to mount it there. But from what I have read doesnt the beardie have to get within 12inches of the uvb to get the effect of it? Or doesnt this matter as so. Cos if it does i may have to rethink that idea as all my ledges that im creating are along the back wall.

    I havent txted temps yet as im still in proccess of getting everything where i want it ( ie - basking spot, ledges and other bits) But in a 4x2x2 viv will one light bulb be enough to warm the basking spot to correct temp as well as making hot end 90*F and the temp grade wont be too bad to other end think it will go down to about 70-75*f on my calculations.

    Hey Tom,

    Sorry to bother you pal, just in need on some more advice again lol.

    I have now gotten my new 4ft viv, looks sweet as. Iv setting it up slowly, put my T5 equiment in, iv mounted a light fixture to the roof to where i want the basking spot to be, but here comes my question.

    The basking spot, i know what temp i should be aiming for, from the comments you made in the tread i post some weeks back. But whats best for a basking spot, i know its a raised area where the can climb up too, to get the hotter temps. But i was thinkg would rocks or stone get to hot for them, seeing as they cant feel heat form underneath and all. What would use or do?

    Thanks Brian

    Hi Tom,

    I am looking for desert grass like you have on your signature picture. I don't have FB so I can't see your stuff. Do you have a link where I can view and possibly buy?

    Ok im sorted with the probe for the stat, but it about 1/2 way to 2/3 of the way down 3 inchs up from floor. Hopefully this will stop the cool end getteing too hot and attached to back wall?

    But with the digital thermometers ok i get cold end that one easy. For me thats the left hand wall. Basking spot/hot end is were is get a bit confused. The hologen light which im gona use for my heat bulb will be placed on the back wall a few inch's in on a bracket that send the light in a diagnal line to the rocks under neath, ok i can put a probe next to one of the rocks to measure that temp, so get perfect basking temp. But im not sure then what you would class as the hot end.

    Is that a foot away going towards the cooler end?

    Least atm in her old viv she happy as larry, just want to give her the best and make sure its right in her new viv.
