Is the lid going to be at the top and is it going to be how you get in and out of the container for maintainence?

If it's going to be at the top, your T will probably use the lid to attache the webbing to. Have you thought about putting another door, lower on the side so you can do maintainence from there?

I would sugguest using a Lower access door closer to the bottom (depending on how high you are going to make the substrate) So that way maintence could be done relatively easily. If not, It's pretty easy to find some thin sheet metal (VERY THIN) and craft a top out of screen and be able to make it secure to the top of the tank, Just involves cutting the metal and then some gorilla glue to seal the screen to the metal (I'll post a pic of the one I built here when I get a chance to find it)....It works well and is very secure.
