I pick up my 4 month old hatchling on Tuesday. I'm trying to sort his/hers RUB out but I keep getting lots of condensation. I assumed lots of condensation isn't good. I keep drilling more holes but I'm worried I'm going to put more and more holes in and let out the heat.

The set up I've got so far is a 9 litre RUB with a heat mat under it, controlled by a mat stat. I've got holes on either side and holes on either side of the lid. I've attached a picture of what I've got so far....not the best but couldn't get it any clearer. As you can see the are holes in the top left and if you were to spin it round I have the same number of holes in the bottom left......should there be more holes to combat the condensation.

Thanks in advance

Actually, condensation is a wonderful sign. It means you are keeping the air humid enough for him/her! Too many holes, BTW, is a bad...better to have too few at first, as you can always add, but not (easily) take away.
