Living up North, it's cold but humid. I have a digital in / out thermometer and humidity kit and was told to aim for 30-50% (up to 60% when shedding). Mine's at 65% (sometimes a bit higher) although it does lower to around 55% if I turn the bulb on periodically

Room humidity is in the 60s as well. A third of the top of the tank is vented and I only have a small water bowl on the cool side. Dry aspen substrate etc etc. Is there anything else I should do? I heard high humidity can comtribute to respiratory problems but I cant hear anything (only had the snake a month though). It's been captive bred locally so I'm hoping it's accustomed to the levels!?

i would leave it like that, that shoudnt be ok. 55-65% is good but doesn't realy matter for corns as much as other snakes, 40% would be ok. if you want to lower it hmm well get rid of moss's or more ventalation if possible.
when its going to shed maybe raise the humidity,with moss, big water bowl, hope this helps
