Depending on the species, the majority of tarantulas are comfortable at normal room temperature. Remember tarantulas are more active at night when temperatures are cool. Hunting in the high 50s and 60s in the desert. Unless your breeding or incubating 65-70 is perfect. Humidity isn't necessary....just a water dish usually does the trick.

Don't worry about attaining specific numbers. Supplemental heating such as heating pads are UNNECESSARY, room temperature will suffice. Forget about humidity as already stated above, it is just unnecessary stress. Raising a tarantula is way easier to raise than many think. The don't have as many requirements as a snake or even a dog for that matter.

The temp my house gets to is like 69 to 72 at night and 74 to 77 in day. Are those good temps?

Those temperatures are perfectly fine. The room my tarantulas are in currently is around the same temperatures. No supplemental heating or anything like that.
