Default Construction questions on 20 conversions .

Im building four 20g high vert's . I have two right now and had all the glass cut to size to build my conversion's . I have 7inchs at the bottom to hold the drainage level and substrate . Im going to be venting the top with a 3inch strip of screen . Im also installing a mistking misting system with single mist nozzels per vert .

My question's are , should I put a drain bulkhead in the vert's to drain off excess water ? Will I be able to leave that out due to evaporation rate ? Should I not vent them ?

What are your experience's with automated misting , and reccomendation's on duration's and amount of misting per day ?

The tank's will hold , a pair of intermedius in one , a trio of imi's in one , trio of red vent's in one , and fantasticus in the other . No backgrounds with hydroton on the bottom .
