    Hi, I'm currently setting up a viva+ viv and have installed a 3d background which covers the 3 vents on the back wall, there is front ventilation in the metal bars that run along the top and bottom, will this be enough ventilation alone seeing as the back 3 vents are covered? the viv is for a...

    Hi guys, my boyfriend and I have just built an 8ft x 2ft x 2ft vivarium in preparation for a reticulated python. We were wondering how many vents, and how large, we will need to properly ventilate a tank of this size? Its the first vivarium either of us have built and we want to make sure...

    Hi I want to put some more air vents in the viv for my beardy. I have 4 7cm vents. i was going to put 2 in the bottom of the cool end and 2 in the top of the hotter end to provide an air flow between the 2 end and a gradient throughout. I already have one going across the back of the viv but...

    Just a quick question, I'm building myself a viv stack for a couple of beardies and a hedgehog. Obviously the beardies need plenty of ventilation but too much is going to cost to heat. I was thinking of leaving a couple of inches between the top of the backboard and the top of the vivs and...

    After trying my beardie on Dubias, it turns out that we're both big fans. I eat substantially fewer of them, however. :P I am setting up in order to purchase a starter colony and have everything I need but just wanted to ask a question about ventilation. This is the type of lid I'll be using...

    Hello, Quick question. Should a vivarium have ventilation? Our new vivexotic vivarium (4 foot x 2 foot x 2 foot) has no ventilation holes. Its for a Beardie, and he seems to be fine in it. Temps are ok, heat bulb on a habistat. But it worrires me there wont be enough...

    Wandering if I should add some ventilation into my incubator? It's got nothing in it at the moment, so I was wandering if it would be a good idea. I was thinking of using either a pocket fan, fitted to the side, or a computer fan? Cheers! Dan.

    Hi guys, Just a few questions about using RUBs. So far I have only owned rat and corn snakes and kept them in vivs and faunariums. I picked up my first boa from donny yesterday and I'm keeping him in a 35L RUB from staples. I've read a couple of threads on here but just want to make sure of a...

    For a project I may be observing the effect of different humidities on the rate of ventilation in locusts. Does anyone have an ideas of how I can accurately change and measure the humidity? Not too expensive suggestions please :) Thanks! Miranda
