ok so i have a hose running from a coolmist into my aquarium. I have a vent hole that has polyfill stuffed in it so air can get pushed out to let new humid air to come in from the coolmist.

I put perlite on the bottom and have been running the coolmist, yet my meter still says only 80% humidity... what gives? there is water dripping down the sides.....

You do definitely not even need perlite if you have cool mist going into your chamber.

I say that brand hygrometer is fucked, try a different one.

If you have perlite AND cool mist going at once you prolly have like 120% humidity :tongue:

My hygro fucks out when it goes over 99% so maybe yours is too.

Perlite and cool mist is overkill IMO.
