    How do you keep your humidity high in your tanks?

    Do you heat the water? Spray? Both?
    Thanks

    For my mossariums it is enough to cover them with glass Jason
    All a few weeks I open them for a while and sometimes spray them with distilled water or water the ground a bit - if necessary, normally they are still humid enough.

    Hi there!

    Over night I cover my tanks with a glas plate, by day this isn't necessary. But I don't cover my tanks all the time, I made the experience that dead parts of plants can start to rot and mold. Sometimes I sprinkle the plants shortly before the light goes black. Water on the leaves musn't be that good when the light is on, they can wither.

    When there are just mosses and other modest plants in the tank it isn't necessary to cover the tank or sprinkle the plants. You only have to use porous or water absorptive stones (like lava or ohko), that's enough ;)
