Hi all. I'm not new to snakes, my first being a CRB almost 30 years ago (wow, that was a reality check), and have had a couple in between, but I still consider myself a novice. I just purchased another CRB 4 days ago. My problem is my daytime temps in my apartment get a little on the warm side in the summer. Even now, at 8:30 pm, the "cool side" in the tank (away from the lamp) is 84.7 F. I haven't seen the temp in the tank hit 90 yet (which would really concern me) but it's only July. Humidity is a little above 65, which is a little dry. It was 72 in the tank this morning, so nighttime temps aren't really an issue. I have a very basic plastic snake tank, approx. 40 gallon size that I got with the snake from the pet store. It came with an incandescent bulb and shade sitting directly on the screen top, but I moved it a little ways away from the tank because of the heat. With ambient temps being so high, other than raising the humidity, does anyone have any suggestions for getting the temps down to the optimal 80 degrees? And would raising the humidity to 80 or so make that much difference in the temps. I do realize the higher humidity will be better for the snake so I'm working on that anyway. I will appreciate any input.
