If you really want an automated misting system, the Mistking is the product to use. I use one on my chameleon enclosure, and it works well. Most others are reported to be low quality and unreliable.

I have 3 arboreal gecko vivs, 6 frog vivs and a handful of growout enclosures, and I use a hand held pump sprayer, like this one:

I mist once or twice daily and this works well for me. I like the degree of control I have over each viv. When I'm not around (not frequently, up to a week at a time), I just reduce ventilation and have not had a problem with moisture levels.

Alternately, the monster truck version of hand misting is described here:

Search the forum for mister / fogger inquiries & debates. It comes up periodically. There's plenty already said, that you'd benefit from I think. No need for us to say it again.

If you decide "mister", and want automated, I concur 100% with this:

I'm running 2 pumps, have been for years, with ZERO complaints. Zero. You could drive nails with a MK pump and I expect it'd still work. Worth every penny, ***if*** this is the route you want to take. It might not be - that's your call. Anyone can still have problems with an automated system, nothing is carefree.

cheers

Mistking wins, friend. :] They gave me a cool fridge magnet too lol If u go the MK way, and you set it up and you just get a buzz sound and no water coming out, it is because you have to prime the pump. It is not broken. Saved you potentially half hour of googling and panic LOL
