not much...probably like 5 degrees (the Farenheight not Celsius)
mycosis is a mould so the mould needs humidity

You should check her lungs. The lungarea is the critical area. In my Androctonus enclosure I had no water source at all. The humidity probably came from my surrounding enclosures. Sad

I agree, look at the lungs!
If its around there...then im sorry.

He/she might make it. Just put up the heat and if you have any tropical tanks in the room...maybe move them out for a while?!?
Just a pulling at straws here

I'm with LRC on this one -- a lot of WC desert species seem to arrive with mycosis. I was at a show and they had five deathstalkers and one A. amoreuxi -- I only bought the latter because all the former had mycosis.
