Brushless Fan & DC Adapter Kit

An easy kit for those looking to build a DIY solution for keeping lights cooler

DIY Terrarium Fan Kit
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
Our brushless DC fans are perfect for enthusiasts who are looking to add some silent air movement to their project. These can be used a couple different ways. The simplest way to use this type of fan would be to place it near a light source or enclosure vent to provide additional air flow to that area. Double sided tape, silicone, or velcro strips can be affixed to the side to ensure the fan stays put. These are also great for those who comfortable creating a DIY lighting hood, custom top, or vivarium circulation setup. At NEHERP, we often incorporate these into our custom tops to provide a healthy air exchange within live vivariums. (Photo) Since these fans use brushless motors, they have a nearly silent operation. If you are planning a DIY circulation project, we recommend aiming the fan's airflow "in" rather than "out" of a vivarium or light source. While designed & labeled for aquarium hood use, these are not water resistant and should not be misted directly or exposed to water. This kit includes an AC adapter, a direct plug-in adapter, and the fan unit. (No wiring necessary) Each fan is approximately 2.5in Wide, 2.5in Tall, and 5/8in Deep.

Bulkhead Tubing

Bulkhead Tubing
NEHERP Staff Description:
Soft, high quality, thick-wall tubing specifically made & labeled for use with aquariums. Inner diameter slightly undersized for a perfect & snug fit on our NEHERP 1/2in bulkhead fittings. Dipping the tubing in hot water for a few seconds makes it easy to slide it right over the bulkhead end, and allows for an extremely tight fit once it cools down. This is the same drainage tubing we use on all of our vivariums.

NEHERP Staff Description:
Just about every Orchid enthusiast has seen clear nylon fishing line used to mount a plant to a surface (often cork or tree fern panels). Our line is a super light gauge that's perfect for plant mounts, training delicate vines, and more. If you'll be using this product in a vivarium containing live animals, be sure to not leave any partial loops or gaps behind the lines uncovered, since little critters can get hung-up if it's not used carefully. 2400' rolls.

Floral Mounting Toothpicks

One of the easiest methods of mounting a plant to a surface!

Floral Mounting Toothpicks
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
One of the easiest methods for mounting plants to a background surface. These are the thicker (square center) picks that won't break as easily as the cheap "tiny box" type from a grocery store. (Cheaper, too!) Cut off the ends of the picks once they are inserted into the background to make them as close to invisible as possible. You can "Crisscross" the picks to box a plant into a hard-to-mount place, or keep it simple by pinning the plant back. To help customers figure out how to mount plants using these, we've included a few freshly planted pictures below. (Click to view)

Our Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit includes everything necessary to get plants placed exactly where you'll want them within an enclosure. The manageable 4in sections of flexible, cuttable mounting wires are ready for immediate use on very large plants, or to be further cut-down & shaped to create mounting & training clips. They are easy to shape by hand, and perfect for every job from mounting large Bromeliads to training ultra-delicate vines & trailing plants onto backgrounds. The small wood picks are free in this pack, and are perfect for pinning plants wrapped in Sphagnum and/or NEHERP moss onto backgrounds, cork decor, tree fern, and more. As simple as it seems, they are a really convenient solution in tough-to-reach backgrounds. We've also included 16oz of dried AAA-Grade New Zealand Sphagnum Moss, which expands significantly in water. These three things are the same we use in-house at NEHERP when we build enclosures, and we're confident that they'll help get your vivarium planted right. For most applications, this pack will last through multiple vivarium builds.
Each Plant Mounting Kit Includes:
• 16oz New Zealand Sphagnum Moss
• 18 4in textured floral mounting wires
• 20 wooden picks (Included for free!)

Plant Mounting Wire

Our original, super-easy floral mounting solution!

Terrarium Plant Mounting Wire Terrarium Plant Mounting Wire
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
Our textured floral mounting wire has been used by the hobby since 2010, with popularity increasing every year. Mounting wire can be used to mount many different types of plants to backgrounds, hardscape decor, and more. It's flexible enough to bend by hand, soft enough to cut with sharp scissors (or a wire cutter), and rigid enough to be poked into cork & poly foam backgrounds. It's also ideal for training plants to grow onto certain surfaces, and works great in combination with either of our background kits and included texture mix. Use Sphagnum Moss to wrap the roots of non-epiphytic plants, to allow for plenty of moisture retention. It's green, matte texture blends into backgrounds seamlessly, and can be further disguised with a little NEHERP Moss, if desired. These can naturally break down & dissolve after 10-24 months (depending on humidity), which leaves plenty of time for any plant to grow it's own supporting roots.

Foam: Great Stuff Brand

A common choice for custom background builds

Great Stuff Foam
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
This is the most common & trusted brand of foam used to build a custom vivarium background. After applying a thin layer of terrarium-safe silicone onto a glass enclosure, this foam can be sprayed-in to form ledges and other 3D effects. It's also great for filling gaps between wood decor during custom background design. Once applied and allowed to cure, it can be carved or left "as is" before it's coated with a layer of silicone & background texture mix for an awesome naturalistic effect.

Glass Cutter - Economy

Our least expensive glass cutting tool

Economy Glass Cutter For Terrariums
A basic glass cutter for use with 1/8" and 3/16" thickness plate glass. If you have a couple glass sheets to cut, this is an excellent tool to get the job done without having to go to a glass shop. We suggest touching the wheel of the cutter to an oil soaked towel between uses for the cleanest cuts. As with all glass cutters, never double-score glass, as it will create an awfully uneven break. (Plus it dulls the tool) For best results, cut glass that's placed over a few sheets of newspaper, and always evenly support the glass sheet. Perfect for cutting glass to fit over a vivarium lid. Always wear gloves & eye protection when working with glass.
 
Note: Recommended for small-scale, occasional cutting. Those looking to cut glass on a larger scale should invest in a self-oiling cutter (below).
 
$4.49/ea Cutter
 

Glass Cutter - Self Lubricating

The same glass cutting tool we use in-house at NEHERP

Glass Cutter For Terrariums
A self lubricating glass cutter for effortless scoring. The swiveling cutting head features carbide cutting wheel for a quick, accurate line. Suitable for cutting lengths of 1/8"-3/16" thick glass. (What's most commonly available @ hardware stores) Comes with oil container to be filled by the end-user. Always wear gloves & eye protection when working with glass.
 
Nearly identical to cutters that cost 4X as much, these cutters are awesome for any intermediate-scale builders looking for an inexpensive and accurate way to cut glass. Don't apply much pressure when using this tool, as a little goes a long way. (Too much pressure will dull the tool faster, and result in chipped scores) Compatible with all similar brands of cutting wheels. Most glass cutters suggest kerosene as lubricant, but we've used vegetable oil, baby oil, and Novacan (cutter lubricant) as less volatile alternatives with good results. Be sure to completely remove all traces of cutting oil before using glass for housing animals.

Glass Drill Bits - Diamond Tipped

The perfect drill bit size for installing our bulkhead kits, or Mist King Bulkheads

Glass Drill Bit For Terrarium Bulkhead Glass Drill Bit For Mist King Bulkhead
NEHERP Staff Description:
Our diamond-tipped glass drill bits provide the perfect size hole for either our NEHERP bulkhead kits, or Mist King 1/4" bulkheads, and can be reused multiple times before wearing out. Suitable for drilling most common non-tempered glass enclosures. (Most Exo Terra, Tetrafauna, and Zoo Med enclosures are not tempered, and only large aquariums commonly are) Be sure to keep the bit saturated in water while drilling to lessen the chances of cracking the glass panel, and to ensure longer bit life. We suggest applying very light pressure at a steady speed to cut the smoothest hole. If you've never drilled glass before, it may be worth Googling it before trying it yourself on an expensive aquarium/terrarium! Not suggested for use on glass thicker than 1/4". For your safety, please wear safety glasses/gloves when drilling glass.

Handles

Self adhesive handles for vert kits, terrarium tops, and other glass items

Glass Adhesive Handles
We have two types of adhesive handles available. One is clear (deep blue professional brand), and the other is amber (aqueon brand). Both handles are roughly the same size, just different shapes & colors. We've used both with good luck, so it's a matter of personal preference. Both handles utilize 3M brand adhesive, and can be removed using a razor blade. Both hinges can easily be painted with our Design Master non-toxic spray paint (above), if you'd prefer a different finish.

Net Pots

High quality flexible plasic net pots

Net Pots
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
Net pots are commonly used in custom background building, by sinking the pots directly into the foam background. This creates planting sites for plants that grow best when planted in soil. For best results, we recommend waterproofing the hole with silicone, and adding a tube (or other method of drainage) in the background so that water won't collect in the foamed-in pots. Most NEHERP-built custom vivarium backgrounds do not rely on net pots for the record, but they are still a pretty popular choice for many different builders.

Putty Knives

Reusable tools for spreading silicone on custom backgrounds

Silicone Spreader Tool Silicone Spreader Tool
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
These are used to spread silicone on the glass background of a terrarium as the 1'st step towards building a custom vivarium background. For background work, these simple plastic knives actually work better than more expensive stainless spreaders because clean-up takes just a second after the silicone cures. When your project is complete, just leave the putty knife out for 12-24 hours to allow the silicone to cure. Once cured, it peels right off the tool with no mess! These are the same putty knives we offer in our Custom Background Kits, and color may vary.

Sanding Bar

Great for sanding down edges of freshly cut glass

Glass Sanding Bar
The same sanding bars we've been using for custom glass pieces for years. When plate glass is 1'st cut, the edges can be razor sharp. Using a sanding bar held at an angle, you can smooth sharp glass edges down to a safer surface. Can be used wet or dry, but the wet results are a bit better in our experience.

A 100% non-toxic aquarium & terrarium safe clear silicone adhesive. These are from Marineland, one of the top manufacturers of glass aquariums. At the shop, we most commonly use clear silicone to repair or re-seal enclosures. The cured appearance is more clear than some of the other brands we've seen. If you'll be repairing a leaky corner in any aquarium, we recommend scraping out as much of the original silicone as is conveniently possible first, to help ensure a clean bond. Like the other types we carry, our Marineland silicone is restocked often from the distributor, to ensure a fresh & effective product.

A heavier duty, no-drip, silicone gun

Silicone Dispenser Gun
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
This is a heavier duty alternative to some of the economy caulk guns out there, and is the same model we use & recommend for silicone. Traditional caulk is more viscous and squeezes out much easier than silicone, so a traditional (pop-riveted) caulk gun typically won't hold up to the "abuse" of applying a thick silicone sealant. These welded models are the best option we've seen for the price, and have held up to even long-term frequent use at our shop. Their design also helps to minimize drips after it's used, as the "dripless" name suggests. We have a handful of these being used at NEHERP right now, and they are the same units included in our Background Kits.

Our hardware packs are 304/Food Grade stainless, not common hardware store 10/0 or lower grade stainless steel. Kits include optional matching curved washers for securely mounting assorted decor items to cork backgrounds, although they are equally useful for attaching different wood decor together. The use of the curved washers allows for counter-sinking the hardware into the cork backgrounds to allow for flush fitment against the glass, while ensuring the hardware won't "pull through" as the enclosure ages. Note: Be careful that no sharp edges come through wood decor when mounting. Any exposed hardware can be coated in silicone, and covered in custom background texture mix for easy, discreet, & safe cover-up.
