How can i keep mold out of my crabitat but keep the humidity up?

I discovered mold growing on some driftwood i have in my crabitat. I’ve cleaned the mold up but im afraid it’s going to come back. I’m guessing the reason why mold is growing is because my humidity is too high and not enough airflow. I have sponges in each of my water bowls and crushed coral substrate. How can i keep the humidity high but not too high, and have enough airflow through the tank without growing mold?

  1. Mold growing on wood in a humid environment is pretty natural, and you pretty much have to expect it. One good thing you could do is have 2-3 peices and rotate them before the mold gets to growing on a peice. I’ve had similar problems in my tank as well. You can boil the peices in salt water too, it will help to clean it, and then let it dry completely before you put it back.
