    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. I placed an order with them on a Friday afternoon, my order shipped that very day and was on my doorstep halfway across the country by Monday. Got most lighting gear (minus...

    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!

    Thank you! Pet store price is Thank you. Unfortunately, it’s not on sale at my local pet store at $30/24 q. Might have to suck it up anyway. Jealous of our West coast members you can get orchid bark for chump change!

    Substrate issues

    I’m in Iowa. I’ve called 10 local nurseries and garden stores and can’t find orchid bark. They have the Better Gro brand at Lowes and I have 7, 8 qt bags in my cart for $45 total. Enclosure is 52 1/2” L x 20” W. Is that enough? Cypress mulch is $2 for 2 cu ft/bag which would be the easy choice...

    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…

    Cannot decide on an indoor enclosure!

    Yes, i’ve looked at his custom builds and they are amazing! For now, I think i’ve decided on a christmas tree storage bin, although temporary, with a greenhouse tent over it. Trying to figure out lighting now, which has me the most worked up ? I found @Elohi on instagram and she is very active...
