I don't know how useful this info will be to you since it pertains to iguanas, but this is what I did for my male ig's terrarium: the bottom of his terrarium is a big plastic tub and the entire terrarium sits on a 1' high cabinet, so all I did was drill a 1" hole right in the middle of the tub and placed a bucket inside the cabinet, under the hole. We have found this works great for draining excess water from misting and also makes cleaning a breeze, which is especially difficult with a large iguana (they poop a LOT and are messy eaters). We use a big garden sprayer to pressure-wash the walls and branches, everything collects at the bottom (including feces and bits of dropped food) and then can be evacuated through the hole and into the bucket.
Hope this helps!
:I read a lot about people having "drainage systems" which allow them to mist a bit heavier without worrying about flooding. Does anyone have any ideas (or web pages) for a cheap DIY drainage system?
