It's not supposed to be in visible liquid form in the tube or mask.
That's called "rain-out".

I wouldn't think you would need to add much humidity in FNQ, and certainly if you are getting 'rain-out', you will need to change the settings.
For people to help you on this forum, you will need to provide some more information. Please include the make and model of your machine in the profile. You should be able to read that from somewhere on the machine itself.
Also if you can access any of the menus and share what the settings are for humidity, that would be good. Also does your machine have a heated hose, and if so, what temperature is that set to?
Are you sleeping with the air-conditioning on, or do you use ceiling fans?
Good luck with your treatment.
