Well, If you are serious about keeping this animal alive, you just made a major life change. Don’t get me wrong they are worth it, but 100x more difficult than you ever expected. Start doing homework, lots of digging thru forums doing searches that mostly use terms like "water monitor" , "v. salvator", "varinus salvator" etc... you need to spend a lot of time and effort. Any you tube videos you’ve seen, look at dates most of em end completely in months if not weeks. 80 gallon Tank=bad, pet store heat rock also bad. get rid of screen top for wood, humidity is a must,

If you look up enough things there’s a trip to home depot in your near future. Good luck.
