Yes Ive read guides etc, but Im pretty sure a few of them are out of date.
What I have:

Fish tank pump, bubbler thing
Fish Tank its self
Fish tank heater
Pertile

Cheers

Errr.... a Terrarium Terrarium !
Seriously I would make sure you have a air stone attached to end of air pump line in a jar of water / h202 along with the heater element. Then use perlite as per normal use and ummmmmm......fan 2/3 times a day.

Ps don't pit the pump in the terrarium.

One guide I read said you should make a whole in the terrarium for the pump wire to go through. Im not willing to do that though, because maybe i might want to use it for fish again. I dont see how im going to put a whole in a tank anyway.

Maybe I dont need purspex, just rememberd my tank came with a see-through plastic cover, it was to stop water escaping via evaporation. Should do the job right? Also how vital is h202 in the water for stopping contams?

use it in the heater water and on the perlite. Not essential but good at stopping contams. Also usefull if you get a case of cobweb mold.

Just do as I did and go get a clear tupperware with a lid at Walmart with damp perlite with hydrogen peroxide an inch think at the bottom and then place your cakes on top right side up
