Are there alternative terrarium lids (for 10 gallon tank)?
    #1772336 - 08/02/03 09:41 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

This is my first PF Tek and I'm finding that making a wooden lid could turn out to be a headache. I'm simply not good with carpentry. Is there an alternative like buying a large glass poster frame and covering that with the plastic?  Putting a weight like a book in the middle could prevent it from bending and breaking the seal.  Any suggestions would be great.  :mushroom2: :grin: :mushroom2:

Wood is prone to contams, do to it's porousness (sp?) so just use saran wrap, that cling food wrap. That sould work perfect.

A simple sheet of plastics works well.

The absolute , best material I have found for high humidity enviros on fish tanks is ........
LEXAN , do not use plexi it will warp in a matter of a few days , wood will rot and is prone to harboring contams , using saran wrap just plain ol sucks .
A sheet of LEXAN for a ten gallon tank will cost you about 10$ , the guys at the place where you buy it can cut it to size , you can drill holes in it , it will not warp , you can buy a handle to aid in removing it .
Good Luck
