Importance of daily fluctuations in the crabitat

This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

Maybe it's because of the height (breeders are wide but short, right?), doesn't allow enough air mass. I dunno.

JMT! Excellent work! I have been doing this for a Short while before you had posted this. I just couldn't back it up like you have so eloquently put it.
Crabs in the wild will go through fluctations from season to season.
At the Moment though, I cant for the life of me, or my Crabs, get my RH to drop! It is consistently in the Mid and upper 90's. When I take the "Lid" off the the tat to hopefully allow some evaporation, my temps Drop and so, I have to Turn on "Heat" Lights. But, then again, I am not 100% positive that my Digital Temp/Hygrometer is working Properly.
I have an Indoor/Outdoor Guage. The outdoor transmitter appears to be a Lil corroded around a Sensor.

Anyways, Wonderful Job JMT!
Thank You :)
