I've read on a few care sheets and books the humidity should be kept and 70-80%, I have an exo-terra medium waterfall with fogger (in addition to their bathing pool) and this ups the humidity to approx 90%, I was wondering if this could cause any detrimental effects on their health? I could put in another vent which would allow some of the mist to escape but I'm not great with making/fixing/changing things and was hoping that it could be avoided!

Having a too higher humidity could cause respiratory problems so i would allow more vents

you could just drill a couple of holes in the top or sides and cover with fine mesh thus preventing prey escapees

can also lead to bacterial infections of the skin...:smile:

It does drop with the fogger off but its drops too much and as I'm at work all day I like to leave it on to make sure, also they seem to love jumping around in the waterfall with the fogger on but not so much with it off, I'll drill some holes (or find someone to do it for me lol) tonight cheers guys :)
