Default El Dorado floor space?

Hi Iím building a vivariums right now and looking to start a new one as well. I read that el dorados are are more terrestrial compared to other pumilio locales. So would a 24x18x12 be good or just go for 18x18x18 cube. And do pums absolutely need a fan for in their tank? Thanks!

Hello,
My el dorado use every square inch of usable space, seem to spend more time in top 1/3 of the viv.
I have never run a fan in my vivs but have adjustable passive ventilation.
This allows me to create a wet and dry season.
Always go bigger when you can

Okay I was just wondering the cube is about 25 gallons and the 24x18x12 is about 22 gallons. And I just read they are more terrestrial so I decided to ask . But I’ll pick up a 18x18 cube in a few days. What do you mean adjustable ventilation? Can you post a picture of it? Thanks

My EDs lay eggs on high broms but hunt on leaf litter floor. Generally use whole tank as well. Iíd put some ranitometa that are leaflitter frogs in the 12Ē high tank.

Sorry to say I canít post photos here, I know others struggle as well.
Please PM me I can share photos other ways.
I used the plastic fabric/canvas mesh sold in hobby stores.
Remove exoterra screen lid( you will not use this), have a piece of glass cut to fit, minus about 3 inches, so I have an air circulation vent /gap along the front of the tank.
I use a few drops of hot glue to hold the mesh in place, noting the mesh is laying on top of the glass cover piece by about 1/2 inch.
I then have a piece of glass cut that is 3.5 inch wide by the length of the tank.
Can slide this piece back and forth over the mesh vent adjusting the vivariums humidity.

You will need to use the the larger mesh sheets with holes that are certainly not fruit fly proof. If you want to fly proof it you can then cover this piece with fly proof screen or the sheets of plastic fabric that are fly proof.
Exoterras are generally not going to be fly proof, with the gaps in the doors.
