Hi guys, I was just if you could give me any tips for keeping humidity up in my mangrove's terrarium as i've been having some problems. The humidity seems to escape within half an hour after a mist. I use the largest or second largest exo terra terrarium there is, it's about three feet long and he's just over a year old. I mist his(or her, I don't actually know) enclosure 6 or 7 times times a day but it still doesn't stay constantly humid. Although it does have a screen top, I've taped up the entire thing except for where the heat lamp comes in. Another problem is the soil. It's very dry and I can't seem to get it hydrated again except for the surface. Although I put in a bunch of bark that he uses to support his tunnels, it would if he didn't need them and could just tunnel where he wanted. Again, any tips would be appreciated, thanks very much!
