Do the gaps between those glass doors cause a substantial drop in humidity?

Exo Terras come with screen tops, and a good deal of humidity escapes that way. People who keep dart frogs in Exo Terras usually retrofit them with tops that are more tightly sealed to maintain higher humidity. A bit of air does circulate through those gaps, but it is minor compared to the air flow through the screen top.

Just let me know if you might like to try one of these out. The 12" X 12" and 18" X 18" Exo Terras are usually easy to find and not too expensive and the same is true for 20 High and 30 X High fish tanks.

I got back to work on this thing again in the middle of the night.



I liked the one in my 37G viv a lot and decided to make one of these manzanita features designed to hang from the top for this one too.



I left the manzanita in my 37 bare, but I'm going to plant this one with mini orchids and ferns. I'll have to maintain very high humidity in the enclosure.

I attached long-fibre sphagnum moss to some of the manzanita branches. I will plant the mini orchids and ferns right onto the moss. I used 4 lb. fishing line and it took me a couple hours wrapping around and around and around.
