    Hi all, we've had Tayler, our b/w argentine for two years and have built her 6x4x2.5 enclosure and applied two layers of drylock. Once we added Reptichips for substrate, cleaned out every 6 mos and just noticed the floor with drylock is becoming soft and am wondering on suggestions. Should I put in a pond liner underneath the reptichips or add another plywood and add drylock and place on top of the current floor?

    Am also going to add MistKing misting system and wonder how often I should mist her enclosure? Have been using a repti-fog system that I wanted to improve its humidity so that its more stable.

    Look forward to your suggestions and help make Tayler happy, lately she's been sleeping alot, thinking the humidity isn't quite right. Attaching a picture of Tayler's enclosure.

    I’d go with pond liner. Secure it under some trim so your tegu can’t pull at the staples. No amount of drylock will beat an actual plastic barrier.
