Default Ventilation for sealed Vivarium

Hey guys, I’m starting/trying to build a Vivarium with my son, I have a wine fridge that I’ll be using which has a large glass door but seals very well. I was wondering on ventilation, should I have just an open screen on top or should I install tiny pc fans somewhere? If I do fans do I draw air into tank then out? Or just circulate air inside only. Please help as this is my first build. BTW inside dimensions are 70” tall X 18” deep x 22” width. Waterfall will flow down entire height of build

I would definitely use something like 60mm computer fans in such a sealed enclosure. One for air intake, the other for outtake. If it is your first vivarium I would probably not recommend a waterfall. If you still go with one make sure to route the water in a way that it does not saturate the substrate. Have fun!
