Humidity level


Hi there. I have a question about the humidity level in my beardies tanks. In both tanks it’s pretty low, like 16%. In order to get this back up a little bit, is it ok to mist the walls of the tanks? And what are some other options for raising humidity levels to a safe level? They both have a small water dish, but it doesn’t seem to put a dent in the 75 gal tanks. Temps for reference are 90-92 hot side, 99-100 basking, and 80-83 cool side in both tanks.

I ended up putting a small humidifier in between my two tanks- one of the tanks was down to 16% when I started the humidity it brought it up to over 20%- I only had to run it for a week - we were below zero and the air was really dry+ I tried water bowls and it didn't help enough

I wouldn't worry about it. Especially since most hygrometers are extremely inaccurate. Even if you had a legitimate 16% humidity, I wouldn't worry at all about trying to raise it. Dragons will do just fine in that humidity level.
