Humidity question

Is it ok that the humidity fluctuate from the mid 70’s to the mid 80’s all day long?? My digital humidity/temp likes to read different numbers through out the day. The temp like to between 75-79 but, i had the humidity read one time 71 then later in the day 81.

Re: Here it goes again with the dying crabs again

I do have a glass canopy on it. I do also have a regular tank hood that i have just for light on it. The crabs seem fine right after i get them going to food dish and eating and climbing everywhere. My 2 water dishes are the medium ramp bowls.
