    So one of my hatches just went into lockdown last night and this time I decided to change it up and use cartons (instead of laying them on their side like normal). But one of the cartons has gotten soaked because one of the paper towels in the water wells expanded and is touching the cartons through the wire. Will this effect the hatch? Is there anything I should change really quick since it's almost half way through day 18?

    Personally, I would change out the carton.
