I use a 50 watt ceramic heat emitter and a Zoo Med Repti Fogger controlled by a dual thermo- and hygrostat to keep the right end of the tank warm and humid. Under the ceramic heat emitter is a sphagnum moss pit to help keep the humidity up. The left end of the tank has an Exo Terra 13 watt UVB100 bulb to mimic mild sunshine between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm. This bulb does not emit any noticeable heat. Along the back wall of the tank is a hemp net made by Hermiefun. Underneath the shell basket is a dish containing lobster exoskeleton and mangrove roots.
