Quick question where is the best place to put yr humidity/temp gauge obviously away from the heat sorce but how high above the substrate should it be? and we dont have a digital one its dial.

i have two humidity meters in my tank and one is near the bottom. In my opinion its the best place to put it because scorps spend all thier time on the ground. But the one up high gives a lower reading so for more accuracy put them nearer the substrate. But if you are using a heat lamp it will mess with the humidity meter but the humidity will be fine. I tested this by turning the light off and then the meter read 80%. But you will have to water the substrate more frequently. (assuming your housing tropical scorpions). as was said it is recommended to use a digital hydrometer and the analogue ones will loose accuracy over time.

As the others said above, the dial ones do move but are very inaccurate. To be honest, you don't really need a hygrometer with this species as the watering of the substrate will give you about 80% everytime.

Just cover as much of the substrate surface as you can to go a darker shade.
