Hello,
Any suggestions on how to lower humidity inside Leopard enclosure?

Right now it's reading 60%....

I have an aquatic 20g tank, with a basking light, WARM side 90 degrees, COOL side 75 degrees (f)

No underheater, to afraid of fires in my apartment. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! :)



Please help!

aquatic tank so it would be glass or acrylic? the best way to get rid of humidity or more ventilation. i had a problem before but i just opened a few more holes in the terrarium (built mine myself so they are made of wood)

the humidity rises so you need to put more vent at the top of the tank. i had 66 at the cool end and 45 and the warm end. i opened a decent sized square hole at the top of the cool end and it dropped the humidity to 50 at the cool end and 40 at the warm end give and take on the days.

thats the best way to reduce humidity.

otherwise its smaller water dish, a sock with rice in it, a difffrent substrate if you are using one that keeps moisture alot.

Those are good suggestions. I have to say I never worry about humidity (and I also don't mist their cages!) and have never had a problem.
