 Wood vivarium DIY

I may not be much help, but I used a Titebond II, Peat, and cypress mulch slurry for mine. Works great, looks cool and allows vegetation to to cling and grow up.
Depending on your design; I’d use Zip Guard for bare wood, melamine is a pain for us OCD types, plexi is expensive. So, if you’re doing bare wood, to a sealer. Be sure to give plenty of time for curing.
