I have a linoleum'ed wet room set aside for monitors, I am planning on getting a couple of niles. I need to make something to have them be able to go into when guests are over so they can be displayed or just during cleaning time.

Are there any good sites or books that discuss advanced vivarium building techniques?

Monitors will shred mesh, but glass doesn't allow for enough ventilation. My first monitor was kept in a tank with a fan and a pool. After that I used those tanks with the built in vents. Then I had an Iguana in a giant parrot cage for a while and he seemed healthy.

What is the in thing to do for monitors by pros these days? In zoos it always seems to be glass front with a fan, and oppurtunity for bathing. Is this acceptable? Or is glass/acrylic always less than ideal?

Since I also want to do a custom sculpted decorative wall, I would like to find an artist tutorial for custom zoo exhibits so I don't end up using toxic building and sculpting materials.
