Yes, well the time has come for me to finally build an enclosure of my own. Nothing too extraordinary. I plan to use plywood, (I can get exactly one enclosure out of a 4x8 sheet) This tank would be for an ameiva, a tropical lizard requiring a fair amount of substrate and moisture. Would this affect anything? I know the tank needs to be sealed anyways, I planned on using this Minwax 1-Qt. Satin Polycrylic Protective Finish-63333444 - The Home Depot Just wondering if it would perhaps not be a good idea to have such a moist enclosure out of wood.
