    Update: I was able to cover pretty much all of the holes! The temp is at 101 , but my humidity won't change. Ideas?

    Woke up to the temp being at 108, then it changed to 103 within the hour. I'm going to get a smaller bulb and tape the holes up and see if it changes anything.

    Didn't change the bulb yet, but the temp has been 100 for the last few hours. I added water and my humidity is slowly going up. It's currently 40%.

    I would plan on adding a fan and thermostat as soon as you can. Neither one are rocket science, and shouldn't take long to install. Other than that, I'm not sure.

    I've got my 25watt bulb, a small fan, and the water dishes along with the rocks!
