12 gallon terrarium


I bought used Fluval Edge tank, the previous owner had the glass top removed which gave me a chance for easier scaping.
The tank is 17''x10''x17'' without the base. I made sliding top door using glass and 4 lids of display cases.

Thanks.
Still in progress, right now I am trying to find a way for proper ventilation.

Can you explain how you attached the plants to the bark background? I'm looking to set up a terrarium also.

Very nice! Can you share what that background is and where you got it? Especially the white-ish right side one.

The one in the back is Cork Tile, you can find them in different sizes and they are easy to cut I got it from EBay, the other one on the right is also a piece of natural cork, you can find it at your local pet store at the reptile section.

@ jmeister sorry I don't know the name of that plant.
