1) Clean the surface of the terrarium glass. Remove the protective backing and carefully position the self-adhesive clip in the desired location. 2) Make sure the tape is pressed evenly against the terrarium glass and that no air bubbles are showing. Press the self-adhesive part firmly against the glass panel for at least 30 seconds. 3+4) Wait a few moments and make sure the tape is attached firmly to the terrarium before suspending the Canopy or Elevated product.

Fluker's Bamboo Bars
Easily positionable Bamboo Bars are another way to add levels/ledges to your enclosure!
Fluker's Bamboo Bars look and feel like real bamboo, making a reptile feel right at home. The Bamboo is spring-loaded, which enables the bar to expand and retract from 10.5" to 15" when placed in a terrarium. The Bamboo contains pivoting suction cups on both ends, enabling the bar to fit almost anywhere.
Magnaturals Gecko Feeder Ledges
Realistic, lightweight faux-granite ledges with built-in feeding stations
The Gecko Ledge was designed for crested geckos but can be used for all other wall climbers. It holds two 2oz disposable cups that can be reused several times before being replaced.
We use these a lot in-house to offer Repashy Gecko Diet, and can't say a bad thing about them. Size: 9" X 4.75"
Magnaturals Planter Ledges
An excellent choice for any naturalistic terrarium build
Designed to hold a standard 4" pot. You can place the pot inside the Planter Ledge or remove the plant from the pot and directly plant it. Live plants in your terrarium not only allow you to create a more natural environment for your pet, they increase terrarium humidity and provide hiding space. The Medium Planter Ledge has a ledge in addition to a planter so your terrarium pet can bask or hide under the plant foliage.
Awesome for any naturalistic terrarium. If you'll be using an automated misting system in conjunction with this ledge, it's worth drilling a small hole in the bottom to ensure water won't pool inside (killing the plant). We've always got a bunch of live plants available. Small Planter Ledge - Size 8"W X 6.5"D X 3.75"H | Medium Planter Ledge - Size 14"W x 6.5"D x 3.75"H

Zoo Med Cork & Forest Tile Backgrounds
Our best selling & favorite "drop in" vivarium background
Natural Forest & Cork Tile panels for terrarium/vivarium backgrounds. Panels are pre-cut to fit Zoo Meds Naturalistic Terrariums or can be cut for custom sizes. Perfect for high-humidity environments as they are highly resistant to mold or mildew. Use several panels for large enclosures. Four sizes available.
If you are considering the drop-in background route, these are our favorite type to use, and provide a more durable background solution for larger inhabitants than a Custom Background could. The difference between the cork tile & forest tile backgrounds is color & texture, with the cork tile having a thicker, lighter pattern than the forest tile. Both function identically, and are about 5/8"-3/4" thick. If you are working with a live vivarium, epiphytic plants will root to these backgrounds if the enclosures are humid & misted often. These backgrounds can be carefully cut-down to fit any enclosure size. For permanently installing these on an enclosure, we suggest resting the terrarium on it's back panel, adding a few lines of silicone where the background will go, and settling a book or two on top of the cork panel to ensure a tight-fit. Our new modular cork planters can easily be added to a cork tile background to add extra dimension, and a place to mount live or artificial plants.
