please help with humidity...
#1
I have a false bottom with water in it. A water feature I fog 2x a day and mist every 2 hours for 20 secs and my thermo-hygrometer says my humidity is 47% and my temp is 73. Is this possible?? If so how can I make it more humid?

Throw away the humidity gauge.

But seriously, those are very inaccurate.

Do you have a partial or full glass lid ?

make sure there are no large gaps in the lid. Those gauge's are cheaply made and very inaccurate.

Buy a new, unused spray bottle at walmart or any store and spray the inside glass on one side. Wait until the next day and see if the condensation is still there. eyeballing the water droplets on the side of the glass is a much better way of telling if your tank is retaining humidity or losing it.

can you post a pic ?

I have tried but I have no idea how to post a picture... I would love to post a picture as I am very proud of my first build and I did it all by myself with youtube as a guide. Is there an email that I can send you a picture.

If anything, sounds as if the viv may be on the wet side. It is impossible to have that much water movement and have low humidity.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.
