    Default 20g Tank Vertical Conversion - Will this have adequate ventilation?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello!

    I would like to convert some 20 gallon long tanks into vertical terrariums for some tokay geckos.
    I would use a vertical conversion kit like this: https://store.iheartgeckos.com/produ...conversion-kit

    One thing I'm concerned about is ventilation. Because it is a 20g tank it won't have the nice screen top like an exo-terra, it will basically only have the little holes that come with the vertical conversion top.

    Will that be adequate ventilation? Last thing I want is problems caused by high humidity and stagnant air.

    Thank you

    I don't really know. It may be worthwhile to contact the vendor and ask whether they use this product themselves and what their experience has been. In my opinion, its cheap enough that you could get one, set up a tank with plants and see how they do to help determine if it will work for you.

    Thanks Aliza, it would probably be worth a test at least. If it were a good option then, if using the petco dollar per gallon sale. I could make a $60 30-inch tall terrarium. That’s pretty cool.

    How would I determine if the humidity were too high or if the ventilation wasn’t adequate though? What humidity is too high for a tokay?
