    Hello it's my first time here and I will soon be the owner of my first leopard gecko (also my first reptile) and I am currently trying to set up the vivarium for when I buy him or her. I bought a substrate called Leo Life from Pro Rep and it is a mixture of sand soil and rocks and was very...

    One for the purists here. Everytime I mention my fascination with all of the elements of Life Support within an enclosure the people closest to me pat me on the head in an understanding manner and then tell me to shut the :censor: up! However I have long contemplated the enigma of condensation...

    Hi, I have a 4 foot aquarium with 2 African Helmeted Turtles. The setup I have is an external filter and no lid as is required for terrapins. However during the winter months I'm getting an awful lot of condensation to the extent of my walls and ceilings developing mold. The carpet feels damp...

    I have a horned frog and therefore need to maintain 70% humidity in his enclosure. Problem is by doing this I get a build of condensation on glass and can't see inside tank. Are there any solutions to this?

    Please bear with me this is a strange problem to me! I had a repticarpet in the viv' for my Leo' but he kept going under the carpet and laying directly on top of the heat mat. So I thought to stop him doing this I would put play sand in his home instead of the carpet. Since doing this there is...

    Hi, I have tried setting up some tanks of cricket and locusts colonies (not together), but every time I have tried I have stopped after a few weeks because I get alot of humidity and condensation in the tanks and most of the livefood ends up dying. I am wanting to start setting up some cricket...

    Changed the substrate and fully cleaned his faun last night and now I just woke up to find my Royal's viv windows covered in condensation. And the temperatures in the faun were 78 cool and 80 hot (He's now in the cool side). I opened the glass and put a halogen lamp near the opening and the...

    Ok, so a couple of nights ago I moved my Royal out of his Faunarium and into a 9L RUB in the hope that it would maintain better heat levels. I also got rid of the orchid bark adn replaced with newspaper. The next morning I got up for work and saw a large wet patch spreading out around the water...

    Hi All, I recently moved my Adult Royal into an 84L RUB, and there is a great deal of condensation. Is this unavoidable considering I'm using orchid bark as a substrate, and have moss in there? As far as holes go, I have holes in the bumps on the warm end (top of RUB), with three holes at...
