    I never heard of an ultrasonic fogger, but jacuzzis are great for humidity! :) Get really big water bowls and put an air stone in one. A lot of hermit crabs love it, and it helps with humidity.

    The ultrasonic fogger's are nice, but my concern would be the size of your tank. It's small enough for you to be able to find a happy medium with your humidity without the fogger. Your substrate will have moisture in it and your water bowls will add to the humidity as well. You can usually control the humidity by doing little tweaks, and having a good hygrometer (humidity gage) is essential.
    If it were me, I'd wait on the fogger and try to see if I could regulate the humidity without it. :)

    I agree. Unless you live in like the middle of the desert it's probably going to make the humidity go overboard. Is it just me or is there no picture?

    I suppose that would work. . .

    Would a 90 gallon tank benefit from a fogger?

    You'll have to see how the humidity is in your tank. If you have bubblers in your water bowls, they shouldn't have a problem keeping up your humidity, to be perfectly honest. Mine can max out the humidity in my 30g tall in half an hour if the heat lamp isn't on, so I'd imagine they'd do fine in your 90g.
