So my situation is a bit different than yours, but I am using it every night at the highest setting for quite a few hours. I increased the duration over time to see what results I was getting. In your case you may want to cut back on misting during the day with the MistKing since you likely have more than enough humidity. What are the humidity levels in the enclosure? How often are you misting each day?Hello
I had a lot of issues keeping my Chameleon hydrated and finally took the plunge on trying a humidifier at night over a month ago. After needing to give him meds that would affect his kidneys. So firstly, this thread really helped me when figuring out the best method, so thank you for helping this long time lurker! Overnight hydration has really helped keep his urates whiter and saved me from a lot of stress.
However I have the same humidifier as you and have found it a bit of a pain to clean. So I was wondering, do you seal the base at all when in use? Or anything to avoid mold growing? Admittedly my house has a humidity problem (not helped my multiple fish tanks and a mist king mind lol) so it was always going to be more of an issue. Currently I only use it every other day and clean/ thoroughly dry it between uses.
I haven't had any mold due to using the unit, but will clean the base out as needed. This is not every day, but maybe once a week. I am using distilled water and the unit is kept inside the base cabinet under the enclosure so it is not exposed to light. Other than that I am not doing anything special with the unit.
