Gaboons will get a fungus infection under the belly scales if it is kept on a constantly wet bedding..... In most cases if treated early will vanish after a shedding..... Stat misting it less frequently..... And your temp is about 5 degrees hotter than keep mine..... Your bedding is fine..... They can hide pretty well in that stuff..... Just be careful during feedings because that bedding is pretty hard for them to pass easily..... You might also be over misting them also..... Dont wet them down too much in one misting...... The humidity precentage you talked about sounds good if it was not a screen covered tank..... You may need to change you cageing...... I use vision cages and the seem to do the trick real well..... They hold heat and humidity very nicely with alot less effort than all glass fish tanks..... Hope this helps.....
