We have an RV and we will be traveling with our crested gecko - this is perfect size, lightweight ! The light and heat pad are an added bonus!!!!!
Tank is great, but
The tank itself is great. The feet it comes with are cheap and the adhesive doesn’t hold. That pet is easily fixable, but it’d be great if they’d upgrade the size and quality of them for the price point.
Sturdy and seems well built. Comes with all you need to set up a habitat for a reptile besides drinking/ feeding dishes and decor. My son loves it!
Great starter tank
Everything came on time and was packaged well and all item were included
Pretty Good Depending on Animal
Overall an okay basic setup. However it really depends on what you wish to put in it. I especially advise researching the creature you plan on putting in it to make sure this setup is adequate. This basic kit is only suitable for certain types of animals. For example it is a very small enclosure.
I assumed the starter kit would've came with a hideout too but it did not. Shipping was fast and everything was fine except my lid to the terrarium came bent inside the box.
Do not buy!
The only good things I can say about this kit, is that it did come in one piece. I have already had to replace every piece, including the tank. I'll go over it piece by piece. Tank: looked sturdy, sealed well, but last night I found a giant crack under the heat mat which I have had tons of problems with from the get go. Heat mat has a thermostat controller on it, set at 85 degrees. Couldn't even feel it getting warm through the glass. Turned it up to 88 degrees, which put it at 85 degrees in the tank, which was acceptable.. except the glass cracked all the way across the bottom where the heater is stuck. Really? Glass cracked at 88 degrees? (I stress tested another companies tank, and it didn't crack under 130 degree heat), so I was shocked this tank cracked at 88 degree bottom heat that has a thermostat controller on it. Another problem with the heater, you can't move it once it's stuck, so pulling it off the cracked glass now means it's useless so I had to replace the tank AND the heater because heater won't stay stuck to new tank without a ton of tape. (yes heater had enough airflow under it). Screen lid is alright, pretty sturdy, but the clamps are a joke, no way it will keep your reptile inside, so had to buy better clamps. Light socket is off center, so trying to screw the bulb in was way more effort than it should have been. Light does have spring clamps to hold it to the top of the lid, which was the only good thing I can say about it. Over-all this is just a bad set-up, so now I see why it was so cheap. Don't waste your money. it's actually cheaper int he long run to buy each piece individually than a half baked "kit."
it’s okay .........
I got this in October 3 and it’s December 1st and I need to replace the heat mat and the light !!! honestly I am disappointed !
Very good starter
Worked well for my Leopard Geckos but the carpet does not last long at all. Poop stains, water mold/stains, lose theards, heat melting. So I used a different substrate. But the tank, the lights bulbs, etc are amazing and I would recommend as a starter tank but after a while changing the carpet for something else.
Good Starter Set
Overall well worth the price. I especially recommend if you need a quick to set up, temporary solution for a tropical reptile. If you're using it to house something that may need a higher humidity range (and by higher I mean anything over 40$-50%) I highly suggest purchasing a block of eco earth and putting about 1/2 of it in as substrate rather than using the green carpet provided here. Other than that, great little set up. You'd pay much more than this if you purchased the components individually. Also it did not come in the original zilla box, which was the only thing that concerned me slightly.. but I'd assume this was due to having to repack it to ship safely. Thanks for your fast shipping and great quality products!
