Nice one, sounds like you're going about it all the right way mate.

Sweet I've got 3 beardies, kept them for over 10 years now. Defiantly the best pet lizard.

those gauges are very unreliable even some of the digital ones are, I placed a digital one right on a soaked patch of coco fiber in the enclosure and it said humidity was only 50

Just go by touch

You want some decent ventilation just cover about 50% of the top if you are that worried

If its damp to the touch then its fine imo

yeah i love beardies lol wanna expand my collection though i want a pair of frillies there cool lol nice one rob i know those gagues are pretty useless just use them as a guide line mate but like i said before the coco fiber feels pretty damp and when i squeze it few drops of water come out so im pretty sure the humidity is ok as for the ventelation my terrarium is a exo terra one with the mesh lid but it also has a ventalation system on the front of it thats why i taped 3/4 of mesh lid up cause it still got plenty of ventalation thanks for ur views every one i appraciate them all Very Happy
