Hi y’all,

I recently picked up a young juvenile C. Fimbriatus and have tried finding specific information on the level of dampness for their enclosure as a moisture specific species. Anyone have some pointers who have been successful with this species?
Thanks

There's no "You need to add x amount of water per week" answer for this because things like ambient humidity or heating are going to affect how quickly enclosures dry out.

Just pour or syringe water down the sides of the enclosure to keep the lower levels of substrate moist (not soaking wet though) as needed and you should be good.

I would put a bit less than water than you might expect first. If it's not wet enough, easier to add more. Pain in the rear to remove/redo an OW.
