Post your Humidity Gauge....
    #1299190 - 02/11/03 09:31 AM (14 years, 14 days ago)

what kinds of humidity gauges do you guys use? i have tried the pet store cheapo ones and they seem relatively innacurate. i haven't gotten my hands on a digital yet but i may soon. Since humidity is a very important factor it seems important to obtain a decent gauge. if you don't use a gauge how do you determine the proper humidity level for your terrarium?

i have two, both from humidor central ( link)

they're notoriously unreliable, though. There's apparently knack of gauging the sweating on the glass, if you use a fishtank.

i picked up a Bionaire digital thermometer/humidity meter from Home Depot, de-soldered the sensors and attached them to a length of wire, so my guage sits outside the terrarium, while the sensors are inside. Seems to be working nicely so far. Anybody have any experience with these, though?
