    Reptile Basics! A+

    Have to give a glowing review to Reptile Basics… I buy just about everything based on reviews so hope this helps someone.

    Enclosures enclosures! Of all the enclosure threads! Halp!

    In preparation for my Hermanns hatchling, I bought a plastic Christmas tree bin (over 4 ft long) and a greenhouse top, both on amazon.

    Substrate issues

    I have been seeing a preference around here for coco coir for baby Testudo - hope I can make it work without too big of a mess. Maybe mixing some Repti-bark in may help? Only seeing it on Chewy for $29/24 quart still… i’ll keep digging. Thank you!

    We do! They don’t have it in stock, but it shows up on their website for the same price as at Lowes.

    Good deal?

    Is this a good deal? Looking for my future Hermanns. I know a higher UV for shorter periods is ideal as it would be outdoors, but I can’t find a 12% UV arcadia bulb. If I can find it I can always switch it out…
