    Default Foggers (misting systems)

    Can anyone give me some good CHEAP ideas to set up a misting system so I can keep my humidity up?

    I have a screen top and I use a wet bath towel laid over the top to help keep the humidity up. Can't get much cheaper than that.

    Gail - that would work, but you risk cutting down airflow = more problems later. You can cover part of your screen top with plastic wrap. as for fogger you can make your own, plug it into timer or controller and you're good to go.

    I guess I just assumed that everyone checks on their vivs several times a day to watch the numbers on the gauges and adjust their method accordingly.

    i never watch or say i watch occasionally, everything is on timers and controllers but having checked readings a few times a day won't help with airflow.
    not sufficient airflow in relatively small enclosures is very harmful especially when it goes in combination with high humidity.
