Need help/advice on new terrarium
OK, i'm completely new to this terrarium thing. I have a 10 gallon hexagon aquarium that I wasnt using and used it for a terrarium. The hood has a hole in the back (a slot for the would-be water filter), a glass window for the hood light, and a tight fir on the aquarium.
I started my terrarium by putting down a half inch of sand, a thin layer of charcoal from the garden store, a thin layer of sphagnum moss from the garden store, and potting soil mixed with vermiculite. I have four small plants in there, the names of which i will post tomorrow but they all require medium light and high humidity. I also have two rocks I got from the yard, which i wahsed with scalding hot water. I have three questions:
1) Is this a smart set-up to have or completely wrong?
2) Can i use the flourescent light that came with the hood of the tank or should I get a sun lamp?
3) Should I regularily mist the terrarium or every other day/week/month?
Any suggestions on these matters would be most appreciated. Thanks a bunch!
