Vivarium construction - ventilation
#1
hello! i'm new in here. i was thinking about constructing my own vivarium. size should be 50x50x45cm. i have one question about ventilation. many vivariums use front side and top ventilation. i was thinking about doing only top 10-15cm ventilation. would it be enough? what about air circulation? i don't want to grow mould or have overheated vivarium. what are your suggestions?

A vent in the top directly above the front glass works for me.

Everybody's set up is a little different so you'll just have to experiment to see what works best for you. If you do just a vent in the top and you still get condensation on the front glass it's a simple matter of setting up a small computer fan to get a little more air flow to keep the front glass clear.

hmm... thank you. so with these dimensions and with one vent on the top, i will be fine? if so, where to put it? right above the front door? 10 cm would be enough? but what about mold grow? wouldn't be a problem? and what about stagnant air? thanx for help.
