Temperature Inside terrarium
    #663970 - 06/05/02 11:13 AM (16 years, 7 months ago)

Inside my terrarium for my cases I have the humidity around 95-100%. The humidity in my room is around 60%. The digital thermometer reads about 4-6 degrees (ferinhiet) higher in the terrarium.

Also I have a computer fan and 2 large aquarium pumps pumping air into the terrarium. There also is a little pressure in there.

Well, the question is can I keep it around 74 in my room and 78 in the terrarium or would it be more optimal to drop it a few more degrees and has anyone else noticed this.

no, 78 is fine. once you get pinning fastest growth occurs around 85.

don't do constant air exchange. it'll drop humidity. humidity gauges are very inaccurate in the upper range. you want close to 100%. you may, in reality, be at 90% most of the time with a constant air flow.

edit: didn't read..cases. you can get away with lower humidity with casings because of the locally high humidity right at the surface.
