    Is there a certain type of metal wire you recommend for the top of the enclosure?

    This is where I'll be setting my lights on.

    Enclosure is going to look something like picture below.

    Tempered glass doors with a wire top.

    Please let me know.

    Thank you.

    The best type would be no wire at all, with a solid top and the fixtures inside. Any sort of mesh will just let all your heat and humidity escape into the room rather than stay in the cage, requiring more wattage to maintain heat and more spraying or whatever to maintain humidity. If you feel you just have to have vents, keep them small and mounted low in the cage.

    Or else use a welded wire mesh for the lights to set on and make an enclosed box that sits on top of everything to close it off.
