Low humidity... add more perlite?
    #4463989 - 07/28/05 11:52 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

The humidity in my tank is reading between 85% and 90% but I can't seem to get it any higher... should I add more moist perlite?
I originally moistened the perlite and put it in... was at 90% now the next day its dropped to 83%. I added some more water but im still so low... perhaps is it my plastic wrap seal on the top of my tank?

I'd put summore plastic on it or maybe use something like Glad press-n-seal. That stuff is nice because you can peel it back off to fan it and then just push it to reapply and if you really mess up somehow, you can just tear more for later.
