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.
