    Hello everyone,

    Love this forum so far. Great advice and easy to look up.

    My question is with ventilation. I'm building a custom enclosure for my little guy. Getting the supplies this weekend.

    Where should I add the vents on the enclosure? Which type of vent is perfered? How many?

    This will be his home for the next two years.

    Enclosure is going to be 72" high. 30" width. 48" length.

    Any advice will help. Thank you guys.

    Honestly, you don't even need vents. The air exchange from opening the door daily for feeding and maintenance will be plenty for it. If youmreally want the vents, keep them small and mounted low in the cage, preferably just above the substrate, to minimize the loss of heat and humidity. You might even want to provide a way to adjust them more open or closed to help fine tune everything once the cage is set up.
