YOUR PET'S HOME
When choosing a home for your pet you have to consider your pet’s requirements. Habitats have to provide ample space for your pet to move about and necessary décor to provide your pet with climbing and hiding areas. You have to consider things like normal maintenance and cleaning, making sure the habitat is easy to clean and sanitize.
Be sure your pet reptile has the necessary lighting for them to thrive, it is important that their habitat be as close to their natural one as possible. There are many options available so that you may choose the one best suited for your pet’s requirements. Whether they need UV or not, the requirement of UV depends on the species. Some animals are diurnal and active during the day while others are nocturnal and active at night. Diurnal reptiles need UVA (light) and UVB (vitamin D3) radiation, while nocturnal reptiles do not. It's the same with a photoperiod. While it is essential that all reptiles have at least 10 hours of darkness, nocturnal animals do not necessarily need a light source.
The food that reptiles and amphibians prefer depends entirely on its type - carnivore, omnivore, or herbivore. Provide your pet with fresh food as often as possible. There are commercially available diets for your reptile, amphibian or crustaceans diet requirements that will provide additional nutritional support. Most pets will benefit from a vitamin supplement.
Reptiles do not maintain their own body temperature so controlling their environmental temperature is critical for normal activity and good health. Creating an acceptable environment requires one to provide areas that allow the animal to raise or lower its body temperature as needed. Heat lamps and under-the-tank heaters will provide necessary heat source. Many of these animals will bask in the sun during the day so specific reptile lighting and heat lamps are important to keep your pets healthy. In their natural environment they absorb Vitamin D they from the sun, without this important vitamin their health can quickly deteriorate. Be sure to use a thermometer to gauge habitat temperature.

It holds my Terrestrial slugs very well, it has a heavy, but easy to remove & replace lid, The Enclosure itself holds humidity extremely well once the top is covered, because it's plastic! The plastic is VERY 100% crystal clear, even when it's dirty, and even when it's Fogged up, really!
It has had no leaks, no cracks or breaks, and has overall been excellent!
The only reason I even had to cover the screen top was because my slugs were small enough to escape, and i figured out they're more active with more humidity.
Just a 10/10 rating from me!
Would absolutely recommend to others & buy again!
Cons: This material scratches very easily. The lid does not fit flush, therefore it tends to wobble if touched; it could also be a little more snug of a fit. Tank lid locks do not work with this terrarium.
