    This is the 3rd time (I think?! haha) I re-arranged or added some things. I like to keep posting up the new things I do to help people in the future with ideas. So without further ado, Yoshi's tank!


    Edit - Took advice from Kriminaal and put it in a more permanent spot "temporarily" haha. Drilled a hole in the top and put it through there.

    He seems to be LOVING it, he sits right underneath it and he is the brightest green I've seen him in a very long time. Not to mention he seems much more active

    The fogger is a walgreens brand humidifier, and I just took some 5/8th hose that I had, super glued it to the nozzle where the mist comes out, and wallah! I added some duct tape just for extra measure. This seems to do quite a great job. If you have any questions feel free to PM me! I would also love suggestions, and your comments! Thanks guys!

    Not sure if this will work here -

    If that's the type of humidifier that holds a bottle in upright, you should be able to get a fitting to attach your hose.
    I'm not sure if the bottle sits on top or turns in though.
    One suggestion I would have is to reroute the hose in somewhere more permanently sealed.
    This will help maintain humidity levels more adequately.

    That is the exact type that it is. Bottle goes in upside down to keep water in it (You can just fill it with water and not have the bottle on it, you just have to block off the area where the bottle would be). I will be routing it alot more cleaner with the new tank I'm building.

    Oh jeez dilemma already, he knocked down the hygrometer I had into the water, now I have none! Should I just turn off the fogger at night, or leave it on low? It shuts itself off when its out of water, so I'm not sure. I guess I just need a new hygrometer (already got a new one from ebay on the way), but untill then what do you guys think?

    Day time while I'm away - On medium
    While I'm home afternoon - High
    Night time while we're asleep - Low

    Sound good?

    Looks good. I was going to use one of these with my CWD too, but his cage is so large i didnt think it would really have much effect.

    I did on the other hand pick one up for my crested gecko enclosure and it does a good job boosting the humidity up in a short time.

    Great job, Yoshi looks great too. What a cutie:D
    Is the hygrometer fixable if it dries out? That sucks

    Yeah actually I took the battery out and left it out for a few hours, then stuck it in and just left it in, few hours later it was working Haha.
