So I finally made some progress...

I went to an 80 watt sun glo, Covered half the top screen with lexan (lights not on top of the plexi) added another 2 inches uf substrate and packed it down (I thought it was a bit loose anyway). I added an Exo Terra Medium fountain with a fogger that I already had. That brought the humidty up to around 75% with a basking temp of 90 ish. about a day after all the changes, the little Girl(?) finally did a complete shed! She was shedding when I got her, but most of the torso skin wouldn't come off.
She's eating well, and growing.. woohoo..
thanks for the help!
Ken
