    It is looking good right now. You need to track the temps over a couple days to watch for spikes. Use a surge protector and keep it in a room with consistant temps.

    Whatever you have your water in for your humidity take some of it out til you get in the range of 40 to 50% for the first 18 days...then you up the humidity to a 60 to 70% range for the last 3 days...
