Instructions

Quick and Easy Set Up:

  1. Terrarium Liner: Unroll and place the included Terrarium Liner on the bottom of the terrarium, making it as flat as possible. You may trim some of the length with a scissor if it is too long.
  2. Humidity and Temperature Gauge: Attach suction cup to the hole in the back of the Humidity and Temperature Gauge and affix the suction cup to the back of the terrarium. Generally, placement in the center, closer to the bottom of the terrarium, will result in more accurate readings.
  3. Screen Cover and Screen Clips: Remove all plastic and tags from screen cover and place on top of terrarium. Install screen clips by following directions in Tropical Kit Care Guide.
  4. Reflector Dome and Light Bulbs: Screw bulbs into Reflector Domes. Place the Day White spot on top of the screen cover on one side of the terrarium and the Night Black Heat bulb on the opposite side. Plug in Reflector Domes and flip switch to illuminate.

Note: Night Black Heat bulb will not emit much visible light. If you feel heat around the dome and bulb (without touching them), the lamp is working properly.

    Piece together yourself

    By Kyle on Sep 28, 2021

    As others have mentioned, the bulbs don't last. The night bulb lasted 3 days, and the day bulb lasted 8 days. The material used for the ground cover isn't very useful, as it feels like cheap felt and wouldn't be at all easy to clean. For the money, you'd be better off piecing these components together yourself. You're going to have to buy foliage and a water solution anyway.

    Waste of money

    By Ughh on Dec 29, 2020

    So.. 1st of all, I should have researched better to know the proper size tank for any desert animal. Chewy being animal specialists or whatever they claim to be should know better than to sell this contraption to anyone under the assumption that this tank is what you need. So my mistake for trusting Chewy. #1 it's too small for any animal. Again, I should've caught that. #2 This was a Christmas present to my daughter for a Beardie. Christmas was 3 days ago, and the light is already burned out. Not to mention that the 1st tank came with only 1 of the advertised lights so I was sent a replacement. Now I'm in the hole for a tank & have no lights for our beardie! Extremely disappointed in Chewy right So.. 1st of all, I should have researched better to know the proper size tank for any desert animal.

    Buy this Kit!

    By Stephanie72 on Oct 30, 2019

    This kit is amazing! Not sure what the one guy was talking about because these lights do a perfect job of heating this tank. Keeps it around 90 on one side and mid 80s on the other. Perfect for my Rosy Boa. The only issue was that the temperature gauge was broken, but chewy sent out another right away! I added a pic showing the lights, I added the decor. I would definitely recommend this kit!
