i have my blue in a vision now. it has two long air vents in the back, and the heat lamp and fluorescent fixture go on vents. i covered one of the vents in the back with plastic, should i cover the other one (for humidity), or should i have more air flow. there would still be like a quarter inch on both sides of the fluorescent fixture. i don’t know if any respiratory problems can occur or something. i’m pretty sure i should cover up the other back vent, but does anyone know how much ventilation i should have????

yea i’ll have to put in a gauge, see what it is, and then take it out because in his old cage he ripped the humidity gauge off and i was afraid he’d try to eat it. welcome back roach, haven’t seen you on here in a while.

As a rule in any humid habitat, if the air inside the cage smells "musty moldy or stale" then you have poor ventilation. The habitat (if kept properly clean of course) should smell clean when you open it. if you can not keep your humidity up and fresh air in you need to work on ways to raise humidity without blocking all the air holes (larger water dish, more frequent mistings, a humidifyer in the room with the cage to pre-wet the air)
