We are in a very cold climate and honestly, glass was the only availability and I just canít spring for a fancy plastic vivarium at the moment (or for awhile). Any thoughts on styrofoam sheets (the 1Ē thick kind)? I am planning on making a cool background with spray foam, etc eventually so Iím thinking its something similar anyways and will also provide some insulation. Anyways, sorry to hijack your thread with my own question! Love your setup and congrats on a new very awesome pet!

    Hello No problems I am still learning ask away.

    I got Extra Large Marine Roll Closed Cell Neoprene Rubber with Adhesive at home depo. I noticed a little change in temp if I was you I would go with something better. I live in New Hampshire in an old house so it is super drafty in here. I keep blankets on her cage I plan on getting some thing else.

    I would go with what Bogertophis is saying. The stuff I bough was cheap and easy to find in a pinch.

    Ask away I learn from everyone else.

    One small suggestion: I've tried that exact same (fine coconut bark) substrate. I'd recommend going for something else a little less fine. The coconut powder, being a fine powder., can really get compacted in its nose or heat pits, or eaten while feeding. There are chunkier coconut substrates I'd personally feel better about.

    Oh Did not know this. Is there a substrate you would recommend??
