6ftX8ftX2ft 4 tier enclosure help
Ok so here is what I need help with, I am hoping to get a rather large cupboard flat pack on Friday to convert into an enclosure, I have decided on sizes and how many levels etc, now I was wondering if anyone can tell me the best way to heat and vent each tier? I will have them on Habistat pulse proportional thermostats to monitor the heat but can anyone give me a good heating and ventilation layout for each 6ft Long X 2ft High X 2ft Wide tier? Help would be greatly appreciated.

A pair of Bredli, a Pair of Diamonds, and 2 pair of Childreni...
i aint no experts, 1st i would make the bottom one the diamonds enclosure, as that will be the easiest on to keep coolest. the other 2 enclosures will get some heat from the enclosure underneath also.
as for vents, i just use the plastic ones from bunnings. 1 at each end, on the sides or the back walls, your choice really. i like them on the back wall, as then you just need 1vent for each hole. if it's on the sides i use 2 vents for each hole for aesthetics only
heating has so many options, i would go with proherp heat panels myself. just cos i like em. but any way you can get the right temps is the right way ( within reason,lol)SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES - NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.
I used metal vents from Bunnings, they are in the tradie section (where the long lengths of wood etc are) here in Darwin and not on the shelf inside the main area of the shop. These are called Eaves vents and are about $14 a pair from memory and measure 405mm X 205 mm. They were way cheaper than any of the others I saw there (for a pair) and have like a type of nylon mesh on the inside so they don't cause injury to your snakes when/if they come in contact with them.“The Cops said my dog was chasing a kid down the road on a bike and I said rubbish, he doesn't even own a bike.”.
