Light hood holder

I made a holder for the UVB light fixture in Mangos terrarium.
The terrarium is glass with screen covers on the top. Then the holder is made out of cut down pine 2x4.
My question is does it need to be finished or sealed?

It needs a reflector - not sure about finishing it

Yes seal it. Every variety of evergreen is toxic, not only to reptiles but dogs as well. If your beardie isn't in direct contact, it may not be an issue, but why take a chance.

I was afraid that might be the consensus after we installed it in the terrarium.
We were anxious to get him moved so I didn’t take the time to do it before :confused:
And no he won’t be in contact with the wood.
The wood stain will be adequate right?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
