About This Product

Exo Terra Glass Terrariums are a clear favorite around our facility. We use them for many of our tree frogs, toads, and other critters. These versatile tanks are well suited for many kinds of set-ups, including paludariums, tropical, desert, artificial, or naturalistic.

The biggest advantage is the front-opening doors (8 inch tanks only have one front door). The front doors allow us to easily and safely feed and care for the critters inside. There’s no need to remove any fixtures, as you have to with top-opening tanks or create a barrier to block your animals from escaping, as you have to with a single front opening door.

These terrariums come in a wide variety of sizes to suit many reptiles and amphibians. The screen top comes with the tank and will work well for animals that need low humidity, infrared lighting, or UVB lighting. For dart frogs, we like to customize the tank and replace the screen top with a solid glass top; this allows you to keep the humidity above 80%.

The foam background is created to replicate rocks and is helpful when hardscaping your terrarium. Whether you choose to use live plants, artificial plants, flexible vines, or wood pieces, the foam makes it easy to attach fixtures. Simply use wire, toothpicks, skewers, net cups, etc. to attach items to the foam background. The cord cavities combined with the closeable inlets on the screen top allows plenty of room for any cords or tubing needed in your setup.

The following accessories are compatible, but not included:

  • Exo Terra Compact Top Lighting Fixture
  • Exo Terra Terrarium Lock
  • Hygrometer, Thermometer, and Combometer

great terrarium

This terrarium is great -- my only complaints is that the included background is a little boring, but you can buy a replacement or make your own that is more natural and interesting. The tank itself is great, I love the front opening design. This tank is a great size for 2 thumbnail frogs and looks great on a small table or desk. Tip for keeping humidity up: you can use tape and plastic wrap to create a barrier around the mesh lid that is effective and cost-effective. Make sure to leave about 25% of the mesh uncovered though to promote some airflow for plants and for keeping the glass clear of condensation. With this configuration, I only need to mist my terrarium every few days and it retains 90% humidity.

Love It.

I just received mine today. It looks great and was packaged great... My only qualm is if you take the screen top off it takes a little bit to get pack in place, but that is nothing since you won't be taking it off often.

Great cage!

I order this Exo Terra on sale. It arrived quickly and in perfect shape. While I won’t be getting my gargoyle gecko for a few months yet. Have the cage early let me set it up properly. It’s a good size for a small gecko. I love it!
