Hi,

I have around 36g worth of aquariums. One 30g and one 6g

I was wondering whether this amount would produce a lot of humidity for it to be problematic? The 6g is a fluval edge so has a complete glass top and the gap is also covered by a plastic grated top

The 30g also has a hood, granted not tight and it has no back corners to fit in a canister filter.

I didnt think this would be enough to cause a problem? Any thoughts?

Cheers

Really depends on the ventilation.
A dehumidifier runs all day in the room where the 6g is, the 30g is in the front room so it doesn't go in there due to noise

They are unlikely to cause any mould problems, especially with a dehumidifier in the room.

I ran 4 tanks in my bedroom and each tank was 4 foot long (about 160litres in each tank). I had coverglass on them with sections cut out on the corners. I spilt water occasionally doing water changes and I never had mould issues. I had the bedroom door open during the day and the window open in hot weather.

Coverglass/ hoods stop a lot of humidity and a couple of small tanks are unlikely to create much.
