    With a vertical tank, the best way to do this seem's to be siliconing a bottom piece of glass in, then attatching a glass door with hinges, and having a framed screen at the top to help air circulate, But is there a standard size for this screen "window" at the top depending on tank size, or does is depend on the humidity requirement of the animal in the tank?

    There isn't really a standard size. Give it a whirl. If your humidity is too low, plastic some more off.

    You'll find that it doesn't take much open area for a lot of the humidity to escape.

    plus, natural humidity changes with the seasons. I the summer, I don't need any plastic over my tank, but in the winter, its almost all the way buttoned up.

    So then would a slightly bigger screen then be best, (maybe one fourth exposed) for airflow, then devise a simple way to add more panels to expand over the screen as needed?

    Thats what I do with my air vents. I add plexi as needed.
