Hey all,

I was hoping for some advice on the placing of my hygrometers in a vivarium for Indian Stars.

My vivarium is 42" long, 23.5" high and 26" deep, I have bought 2 digital hygrometers to go in it and I need to know where abouts to put the probes (probably a stupid question) and I'd like your opinions on how high the humidity should be? I've read various different opinions on humidity for Stars and to be honest, I find it confusing! Some care sheets say around 40% and others say around 80%! Also what is the best way of maintaining the desired humidity without making the substrate (orchid bark) too wet?

Thanks for your help :):tort:
