    I uses a reptifogger and it works great, I use it on a little higher than low and it runs out about every 12 hours. I just change his water dish when I need to refile it so its not to much of a task. You can use a humidifier from like target. You can also try increasing the bottle size by rigging something up. Ie: cut the bottom of the bottle and add another one on and use silicone sealer and create a bracket to help hold it up. Just an idea :)

    Check out pro products for their system. Personally I still think unless you have a ton the best way is to do it by hand. There is also mist king which I know a lot of guys use. UTH is the best thing I've come across. PM Greg from MVF, dude is awesome and trully one of the best in the business. He's more then willing to help people. Got on his list for a future pairing, check him out man

    %70 for both my gecko tanks. But I only put on the humidifier for 20min in the morning and 20min at night. My bedding for the R. Ciliatus is a moss mix and my G. Luii has eco earth/coco fiber. They hold humidity well. :) Not sure the requirements of an ETB.
    Also random funny thing, my friend across the street seriously just got an ETB like 5 minutes ago.

CB, or WC? ikt was my dream snake and she is a happy snake im just tried of worring all day while at work if the water is gone yet,. suck cuz i have it on 85% hooked up to the zoo-med that controls the lights and the fogger and when it reaches what i set it to, will cut off and when its drops will cut on, so it does the work but i have to refill every 4-5hours, at first would last me 8hours now im seeing that number cut in half so im sure its going bad also,lol

    honestly it's not the humidifier but the enclosure. Mine will hold high humidity for a couple of days without any spraying. You need to cover the screen tops

    Its a CB male, super cage aggressive. He bought it on craigslist for a super low price so Im guessing the snake had a terrible owner. He practically bought a rescue ETB.

    I feed ALL my snakes in the enclosure. Feeding outside for a ETB will only result in feeding issues. These guys are very sinsitive and it's not worth it. That BS about feeding in another tank is just ignorance. Keep the humidity high while it's young. I'll send a PM about how I keep the humidity high
