    hey thanks tom that was a good forum , so should i turn on my other t5 ho's to get the humidity up , right now all i have on is 1 pair of 54w each {108w} ,i still have 2 more pairs that i don't have plug in at this time and i also put saran wrap on the bowls too to see if this will help {i do see a couple of drops of water on top of the saran wrap that is all}if not i will go to LFS and get so more HC and just plant them in the tank an put on all my lights :eek:
