    Yeah its just like i said its a rescue i didnt planned on having a gecko but i couldnt bear to see him suffer so im doung the best i can with what i have but he looks way more comfortable then he used too when i got him you can tell hes more relaxed and ice been feeding him better then what the previous owner did he is way underweight its almost scary but step by step its gonna get there cause i coat his food with calcium+D3 powder and he eats over 20 mealies sometimes and i dont want him to overdo it so i just feed him 10 of em a day to make him gain some weight

    Let me guess,...one of the dial type? The fact that the hygrometer never moves should be a red flag that its not working. The humidity level will fluctuate, and in a screen top it should fluctuate radically unless you live in a sauna.
    Get a digital hygrometer. In fact the Accurite device you got the link to will also read humidity so you only have to buy the one meter. About 15 bucks at wally world or lowes etc.

    I just noticed that you are in New Brunswick, I live in Moncton. I'm not sure if you will be able to find that Accurite device at Walmart! Ours in Moncton doesn't carry it, hopefully you can find it, but you can always order it online.

    You don't have to get them at the pet shop. They are found in the garden section of most large hardware stores.
