When they are stacked even if you have mech on that top lid that generally only ventelates that top one but doesnt do much for the bottom one, by having either one large mesh window on the bottom, or a few mesh winows in the middle of the 2 longer sides, you provide better ventaltion for the bottom box.
Better bentaltion on both those basments would be ideal, and make it a lot better.

Also that other box with the white lid, ideally needs to be the same as the purple lid, and to be sure that other connected white box has the righ heat a heat lamp like on the other one would be a good idea.

I really do hear you about the ventilation, and I do understand it comes from a place of good intentions for my hedgehog. But did you happen to notice the lid to the top bin?

Nope, never lived in Utah - but I do know the importance of adequate ventilation.

Obviously, by the lid of the top bin, you know how to cut out a window and mesh an opening. The tiny little square that leads to the bottom bin is not adequate ventilation and it is my suggestion that you improve it by doing the same as you have done to the lid of the top bin to the sides of the 'basement' bin. Otherwise I can see potential issues with stale air here; mesh really would be the best option to take.

Safe to assume you haven't seen the pattern yet.

Been following this thread.

Giubo, you stated " I'll add compost and the cuc tomorrow. (Don't give me the cuc lecture, my hermit crab tank is about to have a die off anyway)."
What is cuc? sorry, but I don't know what that refers to.

I also wasn't understanding your reply today reiterating that this is a work in progress. That comment didn't seem to acknowledge the posts immediately prior by Emc and Ria about ventilation, or were/are you dismissing the suggestions? Just trying to follow the trains of thought here.

I'm guessing that cuc is short for clean up crew
