Use Instructions: Screen Cover:The mesh used in the screen cover has been selected for its superior UVB and light transmission properties, and is made of corrosion resistant Stainless Steel. The screen cover is removed by pressing on the two tabs and lifting up on the front of the cover. It can be reinstalled by inserting the rear edge of the cover first, and lowering the front of the screen cover until it snaps into place.Door:Your new terrarium features a single, full front glass door for optimum viewing pleasure. To open the door, press down on the latch and pull on the plastic door frame just above the latch. To close the door, press down on the latch, push the door closed, and release the latch.Locking the Door:For the safety of your terrarium animals and small children, the door of your terrarium may be locked by installing a small lock through the holes just above thedoor latch. Zoo Med’s Naturalistic Terrarium Repti Lock (Item NT-TL, sold separately) is easy to use and allows you to choose your own 3-digit combination.Naturalistic Terrarium Light Bar:The Naturalistic Terrarium Light Bar (Items NT-L12 and NT-L18, sold separately) allows you to mount lamps inside your terrarium for a clean and modern look. The light bar attaches to the inside of the screen cover. Instructions for installation and use are included in the package with the Naturalistic Terrarium Light Bar. If you choose not to mount your lamps inside the terrarium, you may suspend a light fixture above the screen cover (i.e. Zoo Med’s Deep Dome Lamp Fixture, Item LF-17).Power Cord/Airline Tubing Exit Slots:There are six exit locations (three per side) for power cords and airline tubing on the back of the upper frame of the terrarium. Hold-down clips in the screen cover create a tight seal at this location to prevent insects from escaping. To run power cords or airline tubing out of the terrarium, insert into one of the slots and pull to remove unwanted slack (figure 1). When the screen cover is reinstalled, the hold-down clips will press against the power cords or tubing and hold them in place.Using Under Tank Heaters:Special care has been taken in the design of your terrarium to easily accommodate under tank heaters like Zoo Med’s Repti Therm U.T.H. Under Tank Heaters. There are two power cord exit slots on the back side of the base of the terrarium (one on each side). In addition, the back and sides of the base of the terrarium are elevated to allow excess heat to escape. When using Zoo Med’s Repti Therm U.T.H. Under Tank Heater with Zoo Med’s Naturalistic Terrarium, you do notneed to apply the rubber feet to the base of the terrarium.Ventilation:Traditional terrariums have poor ventilation with only a screen cover on top. Your terrarium has “flow-through” ventilation to allow for greater air exchange. Just below the door there is a grill with small ventilation holes that allow air to enter the terrarium. A temperature gradient in your terrarium will cause a natural flow of air into the front grill, up to the top of the terrarium, and out through the screen cover. This is beneficial for both plants and animals in your terrarium.Water Features in Your Terrarium:The bottom portion of your terrarium is designed to hold water, allowing you to fill the terrarium with water up to the plastic vent below the door. You can create a natural paludarium with land and water areas, or fill the bottom with water and gravel only. You can also add a pump and a background to create a waterfall!
