High humidity

Bioactive

My beardie’s tank has really high humidity I can’t get it to lower. I’ve tried as much as I know how, I’ve got a dehumidifier going and I took out any source of water that could raise the humidity. Does anyone know what else’s I could do? I just moved and the humidity is 40% to as high as 60% sometimes. For some background info she has a T5 linear UBV bulb, a ceramic heat bulb, and a basking bulb in a 120 gallon tank (zen habitat 4’ 2’ 2’) I’m just about to set it up to make it bioactive but I doubt that will help the humidity and I’m worried it may even make it worse if I have to water the plants sometimes . (It’s empty except for some plastic hides and rocks only because it’s temporary and I’m going out literally today to get the soil wood and rocks to set it up.)

Optimal humidity is 40-50% -- you dont want it under 20% and over 70% -- please use a digital probe hygrometer placed in the center back wall of your tank --

Oh I had no idea I guess I was reading outdated information, I was told optimal was 20-30. Thanks for the info I already use digital so I guess everything is alright thanks a lot :)

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
