    automatic humidity system???

    Hello, i have a 6ft x 2ft x 2ft tank i have build for my retic. I'm really going all out on this big enclosure and it's heated by a RHP. So, i was wondering if theres some kind of humidity system someone sells where you can set a humidity level and it will auto mist and keep your enclosure at a proper level of humidity?? I have no clue if theres something like this, but it would be cool if there was.

    I have been looking at the spyder robotics herpstat. They say they will do temp and humidity but I have not heard of anyone using them for humidity. Everyone swears by them for temp control. I'd also be interested to hear anyone's experience with them controlling humidity.

    I just got a Herpstat for my heat lamp, and have been looking into connecting it to some sort of mister. I have a Herpstat 4 (room to expand) and it can run a humidifier on 2 of the channels. It can run at a set time, up to 9 scheduled times per day, or you can buy a humidity sensor for it to turn on when it reaches below a certain threshold. I've seen people use room humidifiers with a tube channeling it into an enclosure, or reptile-specific foggers or home-made ones, though not necessarily with the Herpstat.

    Re: automatic humidity system???

    I made a tank humidifier from an ultrasonic humidifier off Craigslist for $10. Got the tubing and connecting parts from home depot for under $10. It's not automatic, but works well when I'm closing up the cage (lost humidity) after handling the snake. I think I saw some cage humidifiers from ZooMed that work on a schedule. They run about $70-$80 and put out fog. I have a glass cage with foil covered top, and coconut substrate. My humidity is not hard to control, and I live in the desert. I check it nightly using digital temp/ humidity gauges. I have one one each side, and add as needed. The more experienced folks may have ideas about hooking one up to become more automated.
