I currently have a habitat in a decent sized walk-in closet, with shelving and equipment all set up, that looks great and I'm really happy with. So I'd like to say I'm pretty confident about all the requirements of properly maintaining and caring for an iguana, but the new room is going to be 10 times the size of the closet. I live in Ohio in the USA, so very hot summers and very cold winters, which is why I plan on using a timer and thermostat system. I have Melissa Kaplan's book Iguanas for Dummies and have religiously read info on her site and this one. |
I plan on using mold inhibiting paint all around, ceiling included. I have a small Exo Terra fogger, but will use a full humidifier in the new room. As mentioned, I have a few ways to heat, cool, and ventilate. Also worth mentioning, the new Iggy room will face the living room where we spend the majority of our time. The room is 13ft in length, so I am building a "wall" out of two sets of 6' sliding glass doors, meaning there will be 12' of viewing area between the living room and the Iggy room.
I was very interested in MVBs, but it seems that the majority of what I hear is that they are not recommended for a large space, and I assumed that 13' x 6' would be too big for even 2 MVBs. Although if you still suggest MVBs, how many would it take to adequately cover a room that size.
The great thing is that I have about 1 to 2 months to get everything ready before moving in, so I have time to figure out what works. I just am not sure what to do with the lighting part. The heating, humidity, and ventilation should be ok.
