Humidity, covering vivs ?
#1
Hey guys I have 2 exo terra tanks (24x18x18 and 24x18x24) and I had read that completely covering the vents on the doors would help keep the humidity up. now im reading that its not the best for the frogs. Should I completely uncover the vent or just partially? The frogs look to be doing ok and so do most of the plants

Do you have a vent on the top of your tanks?

The vents / holes on the front doors are designed to circulate air to keep the entire front door(s) clear of moisture for better viewing.

What is important, is to have at least 80% of the TOP of the enclosure covered. Glass is best /easiest / cheapest.

No vent on top I replaced the screen with glass. Thanks Phil I removed the tape blocking the door vents

Opening the vent at the bottom will do very little without a vent at the top, but can't hurt in any way.

Not having a vent at the top is fine right? Everything Ive read said replacing the screen with glass is the way to go but just making sure! My house is dry, even in the summer, and I want to retain all the humidity I can for these guys
