Hello everyone. I recently had a pet monitor that died. It feels fairly soon to give another lizard husbandry, but I have a limited window to obtain a tegu before they are banned in my state, so I'm going to be getting a juvenile argentine in the next week. I plan to renovate the enclosure I...
Does a medium sized vivarium with a heating mat need a basking/heat lamp for a leopard gecko? I’ve bought a set up with just the heating mat but I’ve seen several set ups with a lamp as well. I’ve reached good ground temps for the warm (32 C) and cool (23 C) sides. Is a heating lamp needed or...
Hi, new member here.
looking to set up corn snake set up for my children. I have keep snakes (royals) and a lizard (beardie) before, although it been a while.
I was looking at heat mats, and it seems they are a better bet than bulbs as my viv is not tall (15"). My question is what wattage...
I am in the process of setting up a tank for some fire bellied toads that I'm planning to get once lock down is over.
I have plenty of experience with reptiles but this is will be my first amphibian and first time setting up any sort of water area. The set up is going to be roughly 50/50 land...
I wanted to share my Chinese Water Dragon enclosure, forgot to mention in the imgur file, i am running 3 T5 Arcadia Uv lamps 14% over the basking sites and 12% over the water zone. I have 2 heat lamps, one Arcadia 100w basking flood and an Arcadia 50w deep heat projector. Both are in the...
I’m due to pick up a Brazilian rainbow boa in the coming weeks and have been advised that it would feel more comfortable in a rub rather than a viv while it is small as it may feel exposed in a large viv.
This is no issue for me, the viv can wait until the snake grows into it. I am ok in terms...
Sorry if there is a post similar I searched but haven't quite found what I was looking for.
Has anyone got pics of their glass viv set ups, I am thinking of moving from a wooden to a glass for my beardie mainly due to size.
I am also having trouble with the Exo Terra Glow reflector...
I am looking at getting a Gargoyle Gecko and so looking to get the set up and parts needed.
If anyone has a Terrarium they no longer need and any bits let me know. Preferably 18in x 18in x 24in.
I also have a vivarium sized 45.5in x 22in x 19 with thermostats, thermometers and...

I am having to reluctantly sell my Royal and set up due to having to move.
The viv is a very high quality one that comes with the cabinet, reptile radiator, digital thermostat plus hides and water bowl.
I rescued teh snake originally and she had a respiratory infection at the time but...

Firstly, sorry for the length of this post but I have a lot to ask!
As Malc and Ed will probably remember, I am a newbie and we recently had a lengthy discussion in my thread titled, “Enchi BP hatchling and tank size? Urgent help needed!” about the enclosure requirements for my 4/5 month old...
I bought my first Euathlus species yesterday and it's getting here tomorrow. I've since been told that the majority of care sheets to be found online are somehow wrong or misinformed and am panicking slightly setup wise.
For clarity, the sling is about 2cm and unsexed.
Hello to everyone on RFUK,
I recently received my GTP Biak Male, and have him all set up in his new vivarium:
Heat: IR Bulb
Thermostat: Dimmer Day/Night Cycle 30c day - 26c Night
Perch: Large sand blasted bog wood structure
Substrate: Eco Earth & Spaghnum Moss
Cover: Ample Foliage Cover...
I think you will find that those that keep them recommend a minimum of 4'x2'x2'. That one is only 3'x less than 2'x12x18" approx. The stick on dial thermometers aren't accurate. Link doesn't list out all the equipment that is shown in the picture - did it come with all of that as well?
Still making some enquiries with various breeders, etc. It's hard for me to know what I'm looking for as I'm not totally savvy with the morph / pattern names, colours, etc.
I figured I might as well make a start on my set up so that it's just ready to go :) I'd love some opinions of things I...
