How can I keep my terrarium cool???
    #719881 - 07/03/02 10:53 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I have to keep my terrarium hidden in my closet, and it is heating up too much for my liking. Does anybody have any suggestions to keep it room temperature all of the time?

keep lights away from it and put a fan in the closet and keep the door open a bit

I keep a damp towl, folded to fit nicely under the terrarium, in my freezer. Just sit the terrarium on it and it cools right off (for a little while, anyway)

Go out and get yourself a sixpack of beer. After you drink em up rinse the inside and fill 3/4 with water and freeze them. After there frozen take 2 and put them in your terrarium and just keep rotating them so you always have 2 frozen cans available. This is what I did and it works great. The only downfall to this is you usually want more beer after a sixy.
