Well i took the time to build a tortois table. I want to get some information before i put my little guy in his new home. I have read multiple things that say to have no humidity in the tank and to have humidity for baby's. I have also read conflicting things about having a shallow dish for water. What are your thoughts>?

Now for another question..lol.. i decided to use a 50/50 mix of topsoil and eco-earth(the brick that expands with water) for the substrate. My current humidity in the basking zone is 35-40% with temps around 90 degrees since setting it up yesterday. Im sure the humidity in that zone will drop as time passes.

The humidity in the hide is currently 65% and the temp was between 65-70 degrees. Are these number alright for a baby sulcata or should i be worried about the temp.

I also too the time to plant some kentucky blue grass in a 8in x4in bin for him as well.

well i hope i can get some fact sorted out before i put him in his new home... i dont want to put him in there is it will not be good for him.
robert
