Re: Enclosure recommendation

Glass enclosures don't lose heat or humidity any faster than plastic or wooden enclosures due to being made of glass. Its the large screen lids that usually accompany the glass enclosures. The thicknesses of material we use in enclosure construction are so small that there is very little actual difference in heat loss.

You can get really well ventilated wooden and plastic enclosures that don't hold heat very well at all.

Now, for that size enclosure you are looking for PVC is definitely the way to go. Moving a 5 foot long aquarium sucks. The largest glass enclosure I'd recommend is the 36x18x18in exo terra/nat geo for snakes. Maybe something taller but its gonna start getting heavy fast.
