    Humidity is based on water surface area! So... the larger the surface area, the more humidity you will have. Personally I think that is a bit too high, especially since they will add to the humidity when they begin to hatch. I would remove or cover some of the water surface and try to get it closer to 70%. Your temps sound like they will be fine.
