    Hi, just thought I'd add a note about this, in case it's useful. I know there are other systems some people prefer, but I'm just adding a bit for those that already have one! Like some, I found the spread of mist wasn't quite as wide as I wanted, so I looked at adding an extra nozzle. The...

    Hi All, After a long time longing for, researching and reading up on Bearded Dragons I have finally started to setup my enclosure. I want to do this in a fairly slow and methodical way to ensure my enclosure has everything my beardie needs when they arrive and also looks cool. To this end I...

    We have a 6 month BRB who just had her first shed with us. As we're suppose to, her humidity is always monitored and high 90-99. Her shed was in pieces. With all that intense humidity shouldnt the shed have been perfect?? Whats going on here?

    My skink has had 2 respiratory infections already this year and I suspect humidity might be a factor. I've looked at a ton of care sheets and seen acceptable humidity ranges from as low as 20% and as high as 60% Right now my max humidity (which is at night, no A/C) is around 45% Is that too...

    I'm having a hard time keeping my Pacman frogs tank optimal, and she's stopped eating. Im having to have my auto mister go off about 10 times a day while I'm at work!!! If I turn off either of her lamps (60w heat bulb for day and 40w CHE for nights) the temp drops super bad, like to 60f. But...

    I just got my first ball python Friday. He is in a 25-30 gal tank with a screen lid that has a cover. He had really gross dry mulch when I got him. Humidity was at 10. I went and got coconut fiber because our house stays around 65 (two AC Units) and dry. He has several hides. Went from a very...

    What should the humidity level look like during the night for my uro? With the light off it climbs up a lot and I'm worried it's getting too high. Daytime humidity is around 30-31%, but last night it got as high as 50%.

    I just got a baby ocellated uromastyx, about 3 months old. I'm new to owning uros and a little anxious about everything. How long should he be sleeping at night? Is it normal for a baby uro to take some time getting up in the morning? And what should my night time humidity level look like?

    New, potential tortoise owner? Looking into buying an African Leopard tortoise someone is rehoming. I understand they are more difficult than a lot of other tortoise breeds, but have done a lot of research into bulbs and heating and everything else but still just unsure of one thing. Most...

    Hi. My 1 year old sand boa normally is fine at shedding. However, he has only shed a small amount off this time around his neck area, and the rest of the shed on his body looks thick and very dry. Even after giving him a moisturizing bath, this has not moved for over a week. Each of my other...

    Hi, We have a 4 month old Royal Python. We have set the viv up correctly (we think). We have 2 temperature/humidity probes and are getting 24ºc / 60% at the cool end of the viv, and 31ºc / 40% at the hot end. Is this ok, as shouldn't the humidity be even? Many thanks in advance.

    I just switched to a sand/soil mix today looking for a more natural look, but it's after driving the humidity way up, 87% at the moment with slight condensation on the glass. The substrate was a pre made arid mix I bought and im just wondering is this safe for the snake and how long do you...

    What's everyone's thoughts on Thermometers & Hygrometers, are the combi's any good or is it better to get seperate? TIA Chris

    Hi all, 5 years since I last logged in :/ So for several years, I've kept all my snakes, one boa and 4 rat snakes on newspaper, originally changed them all from aspen as it was too messy and kept getting caught in the runners for the glass on my tanks. I recently swapped my boa on to...

    I've had an Exo-Terra thermo/hygro combometer in my crestie's viv since day one and it's been fine until recently, when it started giving worryingly low humidity readings that make absolutely no sense. It literally dropped overnight from an average low of 50% when 'dry' to constantly giving a...

    Hi there. I've been working on a bioactive settup for my new snake that's arriving soon but I'm having trouble hitting that 55% sweet spot for BPs. I can get it up to about 50 or so but it drops really quickly. I'm using a Vivexotic Repti-Home Vivarium - Medium, with a ceramic heating bulb...

    I am building a terrarium (no animals, just plants) and I want to incorporate a small waterfall feature. I have seen many videos on YouTube doing tutorials but I am really struggling to find the right equipment. Swells do a little waterfall kit but the reviews are not great. Could anyone...

    Hi all! My son got a Leo for Christmas and so far, she seems to be doing quite well. We're guessing her to be about 6 months old. She's about 5" long, eats 4-5 small dusted crickets every day and occasionally we give her a mealworm. Right now we have her in a 10 gallon tank with a warm hide...
