Our millipede terrarium set is suitable for all small millipede species with a total length of 10 cm that like to climb. The terrarium size is 19 x 19 x 35 cm (L x D x H). The terrarium is equipped with a trapdoor at the front and closes the terrarium tightly. Even springtails cannot find their way out. The ventilation is very well ensured with a 5 cm wide and 19 cm long stainless steel perforated plate. The filling height is 10 cm and therefore allows the millipedes a smooth moulting in the soil substrate. Due to a high substrate height, a more constant air humidity is achieved without creating stagnant moisture. This increases the well-being of the animals and reduces the workload of the owner. The terrarium is built with polished float glass with a thickness of 4mm. Due to the grinding there are no sharp edges and therefore no risk of injury for humans and animals. The glass thickness of 4mm provides sufficient stability and will therefore increase the lifespan of the terrarium.
Our forest humus provides an optimal ground substrate. The 3 litre container fills the filling height perfectly and is the optimal start for a living terrarium substrate. As food source our complete set offers 1 liter of white rotten wood, 1 liter of leaves and a can of millipede food. Millipedes need lime for their exoskeleton, that’s why there is a large cuttlebone in the set. The cork bark completes the set and offers the animals a hiding place as well as a dry underground.
The light source is an AquaLighter Nano Soft LED with magnetic holder with 5 super bright LEDs from OSRAM.
The power supply of the LED illumination lamp is provided by a USB port.
The operation runs via a standard USB power supply 5V.
