Air exchange is important. As long as you are doing some type of air exchange in the incubator, then its your choice wether or not to poke holes in the lids
:I read on Albey's web site that when he incubates his gecko eggs he doesn't put holes in the tupperware that the eggs are in. I usually put holes in the box, but I was wondering if it would be better for the eggs if I didn't? He says on his web site that he just opens the tupperware once a week to let the air circulate. I would appreciate any suggestions on this subject.
