SO after 3 months of fighting with my ZooMed Reptile Fogger, I've HAD it and made my own fogger.

First my ZooMed Fogger fan was loud, I contacted the company, and they guided me through fixing it.

It worked fine for about a month and then it stopped working.

I messaged the zoo med company again and they suggested another solution. But by then I was already annoyed.

I watched a couple tutorials on YouTube. How to make a homemade reptile fogger.

I bought a Crane Ultrasonic Humidifier. It got good ratings comparatively to other humidifiers that were in my price range.

With a little help from my husband, we rigged a pretty good fogger.

My only complaint is that the on the humidifier where the tube connects can potentially come off because it just rests on top. I could easily adhere it but I chose not too because the way I have the tubing set up, it holds steady quite well.

And the babies love it. They came and inspected it. :) ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1403912162.976866.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1403912173.110025.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1403912193.146773.jpg

This is exactly my plan. Where did you get the flex hose?

That is awesome! I decided to make my own fogger too but I made it reusable for the Winter. I'll probably end up making a permanent seal at some point and buying a new one.

It only cost me $3 to buy vinyl tubing from Amazon.

Simple and works like magic.

Seconds later the tank is filled and my substrate locks in a bunch of the moisture.
