Help. I Cant get above 85RH, Is this bruising or should i chuck it?PICS
    #3874898 - 03/05/05 11:15 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, I've just set up a 55gal. aquarium and haven't been able to get my humidity above 85. i tried using perlite to no success, i then got some geolite and air wands, still i cant raise it above 85RH, can someone give me some tips.

Also, i think i birthed my cakes to early, or maybe its the low humidity, but they look grey/blue on most of the cakes. Is this a contaminate or just bruising?

Thanks for your quick replies, i thought it was just bruising.

anyone have any advice on how to raise my humidity further or do you know of an accurate way to check what my RH actually is. i thought my gauge went to 99%RH but ive no way to check this. Thanks.

well the moisture buildup on the sides of the terrarium is a good indication of nice humidity....unless you just sprayed it before taking the pics....i wouldnt worry about it either way, they fruit so easily

Not always. Just because you see condensation does not mean its high humidity, it just means there is a temp difference. I would have used a smaller birthing chamber, something that could control its own humidity more. Thank tanks nice, but looks way to tall. But I have see dry cakes bruise like that from dryness. Did you dunk?

i didn't spray the sides or anything. thats natural buildup. I shouldn't need to fan the aquarium should i? i have 2 bubble stones under the geolite pushing fresh air to the bottom of the tank, i think that a 55gal. tank is large enough that i wouldn't have to do this.
here's some updated photos as well.

They don't look really healthy...I think. Hope it isn't anything bad.

Good luck!
