    I Like to run mine on the higher side, around 100.5 lots of different opinions, but it works for me. i think the humidity is the more difficult "optimum" level to achieve. you want to maintain a constant temp what ever you decide is the best to hold, and before setting eggs, give it a few days to level out, and show whether it will act out...
