    Default How to get the humidity in my crested tank down.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I don't know how to get the humidity in my crested tank down. 2 days ago bought a crested tank and two babies and the humidity stuck at 80% with sometimes around 90%. Please help.

    What type of enclosure are you using? Also you said “babies”, please tell me you don’t plan to house them together.

    It is an exoterra kit and they are three months old. I have a second enclosure for when they are older and must be separated. Juvenile might be a better word.

    Did you mist it before the humidity was read at 80-90? Or is that the general humidity in your house? If it's just that humid in the room they're in, you might want to buy a small dehumidifier and keep it near the tank. 80-90% is good for night-time humidity, with a dry-off period down to 50-60 during the daytime.

    It’s actually not a good idea to house them together at all unless you plan on breeding them. Hatchlings/juvies are prone to lose their tails when house together. What type of substrate are you using in the enclosure?
