Arboreal species



Airflow can be greatly reduced by filling the enclosure with too much substrate, effectively negating the design
I don't think those enclosures are that good for tarantulas. Fossorials won't get the correct amount of substrate because the doors start to low to the ground. Terrestrials need more substrate height to make it safe from falls. And as you said the airflow can get greatly reduced.

I currently use them with my frog (works great!), one leopard gecko (same) and a colony of grass lizards in two enclosures( one will not hold humidity worth a damn and the other needs a fan to get rid of excess humidity).

I'm using a nano for a GBB, doesn't dig or climb, and planning on using a nano tall for mid-sized arboreals

You are right about fossorials/obligate burrowers
