You need to make sure that your pet’s habitat is set up properly, so it will feel safe and settle in its new home quickly. While chameleons may not be easy to keep, you can meet it needs by providing certain things in its environment. The tank should have sufficient lighting, basking spot, misting system, branches, vines and plants and proper drainage. If you want to make everything easier, you can go for automatic systems. For instance, you can connect the lights to a timer so that the chameleon receives stable light throughout the day. There are also automated misting systems that are equipped with timers. You can set a timer for the water supply. By using timers, you can leave for the weekend and still provide what your pet needs.
If you are looking for a chameleon tank, here are some of your best options…

Exo Terra All Glass Terrarium
Measuring 24″ x 18″ x 12″, the Exo Terra Allglass Terrarium is an ideal housing for amphibians or reptiles. The glass terrarium was designed to have an elevated bottom frame to fit a substrate heater. The bottom panel is waterproof and the dual doors lock is escape-proof, so there’s no need to worry about pets or children opening the terrarium and letting your pet escape. The front opening doors allow you to access and clean the terrarium with ease. You can also open the doors separately. The Exo Terra Allglass Terrarium’s full screen removable top ventilation ensures infrared and UVB penetration. The screen top is secured to the terrarium frame with heavy-duty locks at the sides.

The extra high front window is perfect for aquatic parts and thick substrate layers.
The color of the natural background is the same as other Exo Terra decoration items, providing an extra climbing dimension. Since the terrarium is deeper than aquarium-type tanks, it provides more ground surface to your pet. This provides the space required for ground and desert dwelling amphibians and reptiles to survive.
