For my ATB I use a ceramic heater, a 6500k to spectrum led bulb for the plants and a 5% UV bulb.

I wouldn't bother with an ultrasonic mister - it'll do nothing for humidity. You need a proper rain system (MistKing if you can get one) to keep humidity up in lieu of manual spraying.

If you build a cage from wood I highly suggest sealing the inside of it with a product called pond armor. It's expensive but I watched a guy build a 400 gallon aquarium with the stuff on youtube (DIY Fishkeeper) and it was running for quite a while on the channel and looked awesome, he also used it on a 2000 gallon cement aquarium if I remember right, another youtube person (Kamp Kenan) used it to seal a concrete pond for a water dragon as well.

If it holds up to those uses it'll for sure keep your humid set up from causing any damage to the wood.

Honestly sealing a wooden terrarium is the only reason I haven't built one yet. I'm actually drawing up plans for one now because I saw both those people use that product.

Awesome to see another Joey fan 😀 I like Kenan too but Joey is amazing! Definitely inspired me to build a wood enclosure on day
