All that looks ok..when you add water..add alot of h202 and continue adding h202 often to keep it clean. You should rinse the dust off in a strainer..beyond that sterilization shouldnt be needed..you could PC it though if you really want to be sure.

The rest of your equipment looks good though..that hygrometer probably wont go above 80-85% or at least 90% and will probably die from excess humidity if you leave it in there 24/7 but other then that...

3 inches sounds like to much...you should have about 3-4 inches of geolite and 1-2 inches of water. However much water you put in, 10% of it should be 3% H202. As the water level drops, don't add any water...add 3% h202 only. You wont be adding much..just a few splashes every few days. How much will depend on alot of factors in your environment.

Yeah you should wait 3-4 days to make sure the center is colonized..then dunk/coldshock and roll in dry verm..mist till moist and fruit.

If you haven't opened that therm/hygrometer yet i'd take it back. I have the same one and it crapped out on me. It only goes up to 90% then it just says 'HI'. Reflecting back, i shouldn't have left it in there 24/7. If you don't then you might be ok, but you'll still only get up to 90% which is kind of annoying when you are trying to be mostly accurate for the difference between a cake tank and a casing tank (my setup). My .02

Rinseing it off in a strainer or screen like I suggested to him should prevent this from happening. You have to rinse it off well untill the water is clear and not red.
