Hello fellow tortoise lovers, I am the owner/best friend of a one and a half year old hermanns tortoise named Atlas, that has been having a runny nose for the past week, but the strange thing is that it only happens in the morning for about fifteen minutes and then for the rest of the day he is perfectly fine. I have been wondering if this is a problem as I know a runny nose can be a sign of a respiratory infection, but I dont know if maybe the fact its only in the morning means there is nothing wrong with him. I thank you in advance for the replies and advice. :) ?

There should be more then one temp. Basking temp should be 95-100F
Day temp 75-80F and night temps can drop into the 60'sF. You also need humidity 50- 80% as he is pyramiding.
Those disc temp and humidity gauges you are using are junk and not reliable. Get digital ones and even a temp gun.
As for runny nose, get all the temps and humidity correct and see what happens, if it stops.
