    I have it plugged in, and its in the water dish, but the "on light" isn't on.. I plugged it in 4 hours ago and still no fog? Am I doing something wrong? The water is just over the black part that it's required

    Edit - Just took it out and put it in a shallower dish in the kitchen, works great but throws LOTS of water and the water coming out is pretty **** hot. I will be returning this tomorrow. You can keep this up for informational purposes as a review or whatever if you'd like. Or delete it, doesn't matter.

    Yeah, that's pretty much how it works. It is picky when it comes to depth of water, I was able to get mine to work in about 4-5 inches of waer to reduce the splashing and such....before I returned it that is.

    The fogger heats up the water quickly and I believe it is actually written on the paperwork that it shouldn't be used in a place where your herps could sit on top of it or too close to it due to the hazards of burns.

    I used it for awhile but it kept using up the water too fst for any good long term use for me.

    I just use a Vicks warm steam humidifier. I have it set up UNDER my cage, and the steam goes up through a vent in the floor of the cage, so my CWD can't get too close. The steam temp at the vent is in the low 90* for temp - not dangerous at all, and she doesn't hang out there anyways, but it steams her cage up nicely, and creates a very high humidity (usually 75-90%) that she likes.

    I can't really put it under my tank, but I was thinking about getting a humidifier and routing some tubes into the tank from the side through to the top and let it dump in there that way. Think that'd work?

    i use the fogger not to thrilled with it but i use mine in the base of my waterfall so the water wont get to hot an the splashing is not that big of a deal with it there. my lite will go out from time to time i just shake it around in the water an it seems to come back on Im thinking of doing the humidifier thru the top myself

    I was wondering about using a people humidifier for animals. When I get my new lizard I will try this.

    Human humidifiers are fine and are better made than the petstore type.

    If your enclosure is big enough you can also put a coolmist humidifier inside the enclosure. I have a vics coolmist humidifier inside the enclosure and as long as I keep up with filter changes (about once a month) my humidity runs around 70%.

    those things drive me nuts! i can never get it to run for more than 3 hours at as time because the water evaporates in their cages fast, i have it in my waterfall and i dont use it much anymore
