humidity

  1. Beginner Discussion
    Hiya, We bought two leucomelas last week and they seem to be settling in now. I wanted to check about humidity as it's over 90% all the time. I presume this is OK, but as I'm new, I wanted to make sure by asking here. Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I have had two red eyed tree frogs for about a year. They are in a 20 gallon tall with many live plants. The cage is heated to the mid 70s range. I mist twice a day. I have a fogger than turns on when humidity drops below 60%. It rarely comes on. There is a large water bowl on the ground...

    Hello. I am doing timelapses of mosses growing for a project. As mosses are sensitive to changes in moisture levels, I am trying to find a way to keep the relative humidity in the grow chamber steady over the weeks or months that will be needed to do the shots. I also have to keep the air moving...

    Hello! I debated popping this on the parts/construction forum vs beginners but lets see how this plays out. 36x18x24 exo-terra terrarium that I am starting to get my build ready for. It has a screen lid, and my house is always low humidity so I am anticipating needing to do something to keep...

    I'm in the process of cobbling together a temp/Hum monitor with control for 4 relays. The plan is to automate some functions (misting, lighting, cooling/heating) based on real-time readings. Once I have a working proto I will release the drawing, code, parts lists, etc.

    I've been looking for a wireless temperature gauge, with humidity as a bonus. So far, with the exception of things like an Apex, I've been unable to locate too many options. Of what I have found, these two seem like the best out there...

    I used this Crane Ultrasonic I had at the house. Looks like they're 40 bucks new. Tubing and corrugated plastic came from home depot (cheap). Plastic makes a great top over the screen, keeps humidity in. Easy to cut with a utility knife, hole for light and one for tubing. I guess its all pretty...

    Picked up two M. nigricans yesterday and two M. madagascariensis about a month ago. What do these two species like as far as humidity? I hear some like it a little more dry than what I'm used to with darts. P.S. they are being kept separately

    As a scientist by profession and a bit of a control freak by nature, I'd love to see a forum about environmental monitoring (perhaps under the "Vivariums" topic). If you do 't measure it you don't know if its broken, and if you don't measure it with accurate equipment your measurements don't...

    Yesterday I got two Oophaga pumilio cristobals. I cannot keep my tank humid and warm. The temperature stays in the 69-72F range.

    Due to drastic humidity changes and a gauge I didn't realize was malfuctioning, my vivarium is now *far* too wet. There's no water above the leaf litter but the substrate is soaked down to the leca. How can I get rid of the extra water without the viv becoming too dry for the frogs? Even...

    If humidity is maintained by misting, should a vivarium still have a water feature (pond, waterfall, drip wall...)? What should one keep in mind when building a water feature? WhAt should one avoid with water features?
