    Hey all: Just wondering your experience on using a digital meter for humidity. I'm used to the wet bulb but maybe I should get one (anybody know how to stop the 12:00 flashing on my VCR? lol)
  2. I went down to PetSmart and got one of the X-Terra digital hydrometers that is made for a reptile terrarium. It works great! I love mine.

    I tried the Terrarium Hygrometer/Thermometer by Zilla- the one with the remote probes. It was garbage. The humidity was off by 20% and the temp -5F. I took it back the next day.

    -Whatever you get, test it! I bought two of the Springfield Thermometer/Hygrometer's, those are my favorite.
