    Default dracula terrarium

    Here is a picture of my dracula terrarium. I currenly have 5 dracs there namely:
    Dracula Lotax -I have two spikes; Dracula Polyphemus, Dracula Gorgonella, Dracula Houteanna, and Dracula Firecracker Sodiroi.

    Terrarium is enclosed with a computer fan that I rigged for ventilation, has a temp/hygrometer, and a ultrasonic mister/humidifier for misting on timer. I use distilled water.
    When temps go up in the mid 70's, i dump iced cubes to cool them down. will try to resize another pic.

    Noirlopez, how is this setup working out? I realize this is an old thread, but I am curious!

    Your draculas look awesome. I am having some trouble with my dracula terrarium. Could you give me some pointers? What kind of light and humidity? What kind of substrate and fertilizer and feeding schedules do you have them on? Is the top covered and the vans the only external air exchange?

    Thanks!
