My problem is I cant find anywhere that can provide me with a price for...

    Hi, at the moment I am building a viv that is going to be 6(L)x2(H)x3(D). I am looking to making a bit of a fake rock background on the back and the sides. I am hoping that this will help to make the viv looking a bit better and also help to hold the heat in a bit better. I have decided to use...

    i've read that vivs on top of other vivs can get warmed by the one below them and may end up getting too hot. this year i will be building a viv stack that will basically be 5 4 foot vivs on top of eachother, the plan was that one viv's floor would be the other's ceiling, and that they'd be...

    Hey guys! I was given a 4ft Glass Aquarium with stand that I'm trying to convert to a Beardie viv. My problem is trying to keep the heat in! It doesn't have a lid, and i've used clip on lights that only go up to 60 watts (The suitable should be 100) so i've only be able to get them temperature...

    Morning all, I have a quick question regarding the insulation of Exo Terra glass terrariums. My current setup is: 45x45x45 Exo Terra, 100W ceramic (with pulse stat). After removing the background, I've lined the interior with coco panels and covered the top vents with a towel at the moment (i'm...

    so baby number two is on it's way and my reptile room is no more :-( so after a bit of a down size of the collection those that made the cut need to be relocated. i'm thinking of moving my Iggy and Bosc into the conservatory where there is plenty of room to house the large vivs needed. the...

    Currently kitting out a stack of vivs that will be heated by ceramics and to try and avoid heat transfer between them I have been out looking at foil insulation to sit inbetween the vivs. I don't want to use a thick insulator as it will be seen so the three that are the thinnest that I saw are...

    Hi all, Right I'm looking to expand on my reptile breeding. I've been thinking about buying a shed and insualting it. I'm wondering if any one can give me advice on how to insulate the shed from the cold uk weather. I will also look at keeping a marine tank in the shed. Can anyone tell me if...

    So the building of my outdoor enclosure is coming along and it is about time I turned my attention to the insulation of the closed area of it. I will be using a tubular heater (with guard) for heating but was wondering what is the best thing to use to insulate the floor, walls and roof with to...

    I've got a gravid Boiga cyanea I'm expecting to lay in a coupl eof weeks and need to make an incubator. So far I'm going with a small RUB with a mix of organic compost and vermiculite with a heat mat on a stat underneath keeping the eggs at 27/28*C. Recently I've got a load of spare 50/55mm...

    Was wondering whether anyone ever has insulated a vivarium and if so how they did it? Thinking about building a viv, but being green minded (kind of) was thinking about trying to insulate the viv and make it look pretty... Any heating would be on a thermostat

    My knowledge of physics is somewhat lacking, but I'm wondering if putting gaffer/duct tape around the sides and back of my RUB's would be useful to conserve the heat inside the RUB's? I'm aware that heat rises, but if the room temperature isn't very high then I do wonder if this would help with...

    Hey, I'm testing a RUB set up with a ceramic (for my Royal) but struggling to raise ambient temps at the cool end. The warm end is getting up to about 91F ok, but the cool end is about 23/4 which is only a degre or two above room temp. Was thinking that perhaps it would help to use some sort of...
