    Basic enclosure to ensure proper temp and humidity. Everything is run off a Herpstat4 with humidity monitor.

    Day temp set at 88 degrees F. With a night drop of 82. I realize others do further night drops but these species are flourishing and growing nicely with the above temps. Humidity ranges from 35% to 45% and is strictly watched. No molting issues with high activity during night drop. No water dishes supplied. Feeding 2 times weekly for young and 1 weekly for sub adults. Criticism welcomed

    Beautiful scorps man. Do you have a way of reducing humidity? My, basically, rainforest climate of British Columbia is presenting some issues for my Androctonus. I'm see 60+% humidity in my place due to constant rain.

    If you notice one of the vents is high and one vent is low.... I use a vornado fan set on low outside of the box to push air through for ventilation. The air coming in as it’s heated keeps the dry air (less dense) in the box and pushes the heavier air out the side.... that’s my theory.... it’s basically positive pressure ventilation on a low scale.... the garage gets humid sometimes but I also have a dehumidifier connected to WiFi and can monitor the humidity from where ever I am. The dehumidifier is set to 40%. I’d definitely use a fan to dry the air if you’re sitting at 60%. Moving air is dry air...

    Thanks for the info. I'm not using fans or dehumidifiers at all. Just 50w infrared heat lamps on from 11am to 6pm.

    I think if you start moving the air with a fan you will see a significant drop in humidity. My dehumidifier barely runs....
