The archives would be the best place to find this info. There have been several construction journals in the Member's Vivs section detailing the ways to do this. Basically it involves alot of silicone.

In the Exo Terras I have the only escape places are on the top at the back of the screen lid. I have lost several chorus frogs from there because they can climb the glass, not too sure if thumbnails can climb glass.

Yes they can climb... :?

The lower vents need sealed to keep ffs in, the doors in some cases need a little work, the top back, and the screen on the top need work.
