Reptile Tank Melbourne

If you are searching for a reptile tank in Melbourne then you are in the perfect place. At Waterlife Aquarium and Reptile Supplies located in Hoppers Crossing and Ferntree Gully we have a huge range of tanks for your new pet reptile.

Generally speaking, there are 2 distinct kinds of reptile tanks. These are the Melamine Timber and the Glass Reptile Tanks. We will compare and contrast these two types of tanks in the next section below.

The Glass and Wooden Reptile Tanks

GLASS reptile tanks are easier to get cleaned compared to Melamine Wooden Tanks and glass would last longer than wood.

While GLASS tanks are more suitable for semi-aquatic reptiles. It is recommended that if you buy a Wooden Melamine reptile tank that you seal it with a little amount of silicone around all the timber joins to stop water from getting into the spaces in between that will lead to swelling of the timber and damage of the tank.

WOODEN reptile tanks are much better at holding temperature as warmth escapes through glass faster than wood. With respect to the price, both types of tanks are comparably the same.

How much ventilation is required for your reptile tanks?

The basic rule is to make sure there isn’t condensation on the inside glass of your reptile tanks. If there is, it normally means that there is inadequate ventilation. This normally happens when there is a warm environment, a water bowl and also a lack of ventilation holes or wire grills to let the moisture escape which increases the humidity level. A high humidity level for most Australian species of reptiles will cause respiratory problems.

Both the Melamine Wooden Tanks and the Glass Reptile Tanks we sell have the required level of ventilation permitting adequate airflow. Regardless of what kind of reptile tank you pick you should consider the lighting and heating necessary for the reptiles you are keeping.

Watch the video beneath of some of our heating and lighting choices.
