Hello all,

The humidity in my H. arizonesis (forgive my spelling) tank is
typically between 20-30%, is this too low?


The temperature ranges from 70*F to 90*F. Does this sound right?



Thank you in advance.
regards,
Mike

i usaully keep the humidity at about 10% or less in my hadrurus arizonensis tara,it is ok to keep it that high but try to keep that humidity at 20% only on one side of the tara,and use a wide open top or screen top for maximun ventilation and yes the temp is good.

Don't worry about what the humidity meter reads, just give it a small bottle cap of water and thats all the humidity it will need.

Also, like twirl said you should use a screen top if you don't already have one.

I have the screen top on the tank with a heat lamp, using a lightless heating element. I thought the humidity might be too low, thanks for the advice.


Much appreciated!
