Sorry. I got hit with a fever this week that my doctor could not explain. Literally have had a fever this entire week. So sorry I have not responded sooner. Here are the cage parameters.

Hot side = 87
Cool side = 79

I have an infrared thermometer which I use for a lot of grilling that I use for this. It's pretty accurate.

He has a large water dish. Always kept full and clean. Large enough that he can submerge his full body. He's only about a year old now so no where near full grown.

His moist box is a tupaware square bowl with a large hole in the center of the lid. It's full of spagnum moss. I soak it in the sink, squeeze the water out, then put it in the moist box. Recheck this every couple days. I don't have a point and click humidity check.

As for the currect problem, don't worry about trying to remove that skin? It will fix itself if we figure out the underlying cause or will fix itself on next shed?
