How much foliage is too much?


New Member
I recently replaced my old gold acapella tree for a nice full umbrella tree. My fischer cham's enclosure is 18x18x40ish, it is a repti breeze. My question is can too much foliage a problem? Will it cause the tank to get too cool? There is space still for him to bask under the repti 5.0 bulb.

I've never heard of plants cooling down a cage, but I suppose it could happen. My biggest concern when choosing plants for my cages is to make sure the leaves/branches don't block the UVB or the basking area (as you said you did), and also to make sure the cham has enough room to comfortably move around, and isn't squished by too many plants.
