    Default My paper towel substrate isn't drying out + humidity questions for juveniles

    I live in the bay area where the humidity outdoors is around 50% all day. I mist once in the morning and once at night but I've been noticing that my paper towel substrate never dries out. Am I misting too much or too often? I keep hearing that the tank should dry out at some point during the day (which most of it does,just not the bottom). I don't want overhumidity to be a problem. I should mention, the little guy is just a baby, <5g, and I know the humidity is supposed to be a little higher for them so maybe everything is just fine the way it is? What does the collective voice of the forum say?

    What is the tank humidity? Does it get to a proper level? You might want to put the humidity reader close to the ground for a day or two and see what the humidity down there is compared to higher in the tank. If they can get somewhere drier it may not be an issue. I would just watch for mold, wet material will mold quickly. Having the tank dry out helps prevent this.
