What do you have in the tank that would be causing such high levels? Water bowl? Water fountain --- if your house doesnt have the high humidity some thing in the tank is causing it

I agree that it's odd that the humidity inside the tank is much higher than the room around it. What kind of ventilation does it have? Are you measuring the humidity of both areas with the same hygrometer? You might want to try calibrating it to make sure it's giving you an accurate reading.

How are you measuring both the room and tank humidities ?

What is the substrate in the tank ?

Is there a water dish warmed water in the tank ?
