Questions about the humidity and temperature!!!!
    #516604 - 01/10/02 07:46 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I have an Acurite humidity/thermometer and I was curious why the humidity goes down when the heat goes up. I have 2 100 watt lights behind my tank that I turn on every so often and a small fish tank pump that I turn on often as well.

Does it matter where I put the sensor for the gauge inside the tank??

you have 200 watts of light hiting your tank? these aren't plants, they are fungi. 10 watts of light is more than enough. also with that much dry heat hitting your tank, its going to cause the temps to skyrocket, and the tank probably isnt sealed so im sure some of it is seeping out. also if i remember HS earth science (years ago) and if the acurite guage shows true RELATIVE humidity, as the temps go up relative humidity drops unless there is more water available to turn to h2o vapor.
peace, ar393
