Aluminum Duct Tape

Heat resistant reflective tape with tons of uses

Aluminum Duct Tape
Essentially the same heat resistant aluminum heat tape sold at hardware stores, only at half the price! Commonly used for lining light fixtures to increase reflectivity, as well as many other uses. We've used this tape to hold heat cable & pads in place, hold reflective coatings on walls, and of course for fixing ductwork. High quality & thick 2 mil material, on a 30' roll.

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 Kit - 1/2"

The highest quality aquarium bulkheads out there!

Bulkhead Kit For Vivariums
NEHERP Staff Description:
This is our favorite bulkhead kit used for drainage in vivariums. In addition, these are perfect for use with accessory/external water pumps, automatic drainage, aquariums and more. Each bulkhead kit allows for a waterproof seal between a drilled hole in glass & the attached tubing. These are the same bulkhead kits we use at NEHERP, and we're confident that you'll be satisfied with the quality. Each kit includes the bulkhead, ribbed silicone gasket, filter screen (to prevent debris from entering the tubing), and an elbow fitting. Please use our Glass Drill Bit & Bulkhead Tubing to guarantee a perfect fitment.

Bulkhead Tubing

A perfect fit for our bulkhead fittings (above)

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.

A great looking way to cover glass parts

Contact Paper - Before Contact Paper - After
NEHERP Staff Description:
A washable, self-adhesive, matte black material for covering glass panels on live vivariums. Sold in different lengths, and easy to cut to fit any project using scissors or a razor. Once cut to size, it's as easy as removing the inner paper layer to expose the adhesive backing, and applying it to a clean surface. We suggest using the side of a credit card to ensure a bubble-free finish. For use on the exterior of enclosures only.

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.

Stainless Steel Hardware

Ideal for affixing wood decor to background tiles & more!

Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware
Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware Stainless Steel Terrarium Hardware

▾ Show Price & Description ▾
High grade stainless steel hardware for affixing wood decor together, decor to backgrounds, and more. 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.
