Probably, most people have dehumidifiers for their basement without having fish tanks, and the tanks add a lot of humidity

found this on wikipedia:

get a psychrometer or hygrometer to test your humidity

The United States Environmental Protection Agency cites the ASHRAE Standard 55-1992 Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy, which recommends keeping relative humidity between 30% and 60%, with below 50% preferred to control dust mites.

There is a certain % that if you get near that % you will start to grow mold. Mold will stay dormant until that % is reached.
