10 gallon humidity issues
    #1078977 - 11/23/02 09:36 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

*low humidity issues only 68%!

okay mycats 10 gallon tank has 3" of perlite water up to 2-2.5" an 18" bubblestone@ back of tank, 1/2" bubbler @ mason jar, cardboard with hole in it, saranwrap/duct tape cover.

my cat says his digital meter reads constant %68, with slight sweating near one long edge of tank (bout 2ft sq of moisture buildup). only one bubbler is on @ a tim 24-7. low-average pinning, average size specimens.

questions:
1. how to increase relative rh%?
2. is the air flow keeping the humidity down?
3. should whiskers make a MORE airtight cover, or simply purchase one?


any input would be greatly appreciated!

it sounds like you've got plenty of water in there. my only guess for the low rh is either the top isn't air-tight enough and/or your humidity gauge is wrong.

i was thinking about both of those issues, but wouldnt it not really matter if the top was uber airtight cause ofthe bubbler on 24-7. should it be switched it to only a few hours / instances per day? also i told this to wiskers, he told me that when he moves the mason jar by a flushing cake , the specimens tend to grow towards the jar... perhaps it is only %68 rh in there, and the constant air flow makes it so, ill try switching it... THANKS!
