As someone looking to setup a home before introducing an inmate, this table along with lighting/heating. substrate, humidity etc. will be a major consideration.  Can anyone recommend a commercially available table for a solitary hermann's - preferably with all necessary extras? - Alternatively, if it is better to buy individual components, rather than compromise, the whereabouts of a solid table or example would be much appreciated.

 

Apologies if this contravenes any rules re: advertising etc. my intentions are merely parctical for the benefit of my (future) tortoise :)

I have seen a few advertised, Stella.  I do want one suitable for purpose.  I have seen some commercial ones but as a novice I have no way of telling or knowing whether they are suitable for purpose.  Yes, I know there is the "suck-it-and-see" approach, but a poor purchase now might have consequences not so much for me and my wallet, but my first tortoise.

 

Now already i know not to choose pet stores for tortoises, but what about tables? I'm at the mercy of forums & google until such time as my first books appear lol.
