    i have my home built igloo-bator set and it is holding at 99.8 degrees and 40% humidity. should leave I it? it has been hard to get it to stay there, but now that it is, it is contant. this is the closest i have come to 99.5.

    I didn't see if it has a fan?? If so then the temp is fine. If not, then you might need to bump the temp up a bit.
