Two enclosures side by side with same setup. Just moved the humidifier, one still showing 10% while the other is 32%
Yes I am not getting that --- I know my two tanks are off of each other but its only by 5% -- take the one that is reading 32% put it in the tank reading 10 -- then take the one reading 10 into the one reading 32 --- see what you get -- I am wondering if one of those hygrometers is off see if the come up w/ the same as what your getting now --- if they come up w/ the readings your getting now then they are ok - if they come up different one of them is off

The probe is back in the center. Will keep adjusting the humidifier to get them at least above 20%. If one gets to 50 while the other hits 20%, will that be ok? This is the top. My male freaked out after moving him from a 40 breeder where the light was on top when I put the lighting inside so I cut out some of the enclosure top to put all the lighting on the outside. Someone said to place 8-10” but I will move back to 15”. My female hasn’t been eating much since I moved it closer but she is always under it. Thank you so so much!
The not eating as much could be the weather --- if shes basking under it and not moving I am going to say the weather if the UVB was too strong she would be moving away or hiding from it --

I switched yesterday & figured the probes work fine. Humidifier was across the room & I moved it lower to the floor & closer to the 10% enclosure. Now they read 55% & 51%. Lowered the setting so they go down a bit.
Just moved the female from 40 gal so she could just be stressed going into a larger space with everything different. Really appreciate your help! Thank you!!

Those are good readings -- your female is going thru relocation stress--
