    I have a 8x4x4 enclosure with a baby Savannah monitor inside and my humidity is out of control, it is consistently over 95% on the cool side. Not only that I have a mold/mildew on the wood. (Did I not seal it properly?) Is this going to be a nightmare to get rid of?

    This sounds a bit bizarre, 95 percent is extremely high and very difficult to achieve even on purpose.
    At 100% humidity it would be raining.
    Is this the tank that you just setup? If so it will level out and the humidity should drop everyday from the basking lights.
    But I might check with another hygrometer as I'm thinking that one might be giving a false reading.

    I've had it setup for about a month now. I'll get another hygrometer. There was visible condensation all on the wood and the windows were "sweating". I have removed a lot of leaf litter that was semi damp. What about the mold/mildew on the plywood?
