The 75 W is fine. As long as it’s placed on one side of the tank so the scorpion can go to an area with less heat if it needs to. No need for a thermostat. As for the humidity, if the entire substrate is moist, then it’s fine. When you need to add more water to raise the humidity, simply pour water onto the substrate and let it all soak in.
