I use filtered tap water for all of my tort needs, filtered with a Pur filter, including soaking, drinking, and misting. I hope this is suitable. It's also the water I personally drink. So far, everyone seems to be doing well with it :)
Fine for drinking, soaking and spraying on the food, but it will cause hard water stains on your tortoise and enclosure.

It hasn't so far, but I don't even get hard water stains in my bathroom, so I think maybe the water in my area just lacks the minerals that usually cause hard water.

Here is an idea to cover the top over lights and plants. It has kept the humidity up and kept it cozy warm. This worked great for my two Hermann’s first two years but now I am in the middle of separating them and putting them each in their own new closed chamber enclosures that I purchased from member @Markw84. I can’t wait to get them all set up!!

Your baby’s home looks fantastic!! Lucky tort!!🐢

Thank you so much for the compliment and the great lighting suggestion there!! Very unique and I’ll definitely start looking into that idea for the enclosure! ☺️
