    Humidity in Racks too high.

    Ok, I got all my tanks switched to racks. The room they are in stays between 75-85 degrees, but humidity here is only about 40ish%, so I used cypress mulch mixed with coconut husk in the tubs. I woke this morning to every tube being from 85% to 99% humidity!! I know itís because the substrate is fresh and moist, but I canít just let them sit in that high of humid. If I drill more holes, when the substrate dries out Iíll struggle to keep it up! So Iím at a loss...what can I do to maintain lower humidity?

    Something that might be worth trying before drilling more holes is to take out half (or more) of the bedding. spread it out on a metal baking sheet & bake on low heat until it's very dry. Then mix back into the rest of the bedding.
