Probably the thing i should know the most but im just double checking, i read on some site earlier that humidity gauge should be between 75-85% for emps, is that right? cause i keep mine between 60-70 usually, i let it get upto just over 70 in the day, and let it drop to 60ish at night time, hope that i havent been thinking thats ok all this time when really its not?

Don't get too worked up about specific humidity and temps.

If the scorpion needs humidity, and you know its humid in there, then no need to worry.

Humidity gauges are also crap. It'll do you more good in your rubbish bin than in your scorp's tank.

If the substrate looks dry, add water. If it doesn't, then you're fine.

What Mike said.
Go by look and feel of the substrate

Spraying does squat.

Dump water on. Spraying only moistens the very top layer which quickly evaporates. Dumping provides a source of water to replace the top layer as it evaporates, thus maintaining high humidity over a longer period of time.

A false-bottom provides an even greater source of water.
