Check out this, it works real well for me. You could also skip the air pump/excaust and just manually fan it out 2+ times a day. (that's how I did my first couple batches)

Oh, the lid is made from 1/8" clear lexan.

Cool, Gadget - I thought your Terrarium is great and that's what I'm going to be using.

I would like to ask you some more questions though which I don't understand:
- Could I use my old aquarium for the setup and
- What exactly do you put in that Mason jar and how is it connected to the pump.

Thanks for your kind answer. You're the best!

Love,
Toasted, Israel.

An old aquarium would be fine, just make sure you clean it well, I'd use bleach water to sterilize it, then rinse the living hell out of it, and let it airdry, upside down.

How I did the mason jar.

Ran the air line from pump thru hole in lid of jar and down to bottom of jar, filled jar with 50% water and 50% "over-the counter" hydregen peroxide. Left about an inch of air space between water level and top of jar. I then attached a piece of 3/8" od pipe flush with the inside bottom of the lid. Screwed the lid on, and ran a 3/8" ID hose from the plastic pipe to the inside of the terrarium. Evertyhing was glued together using quick set epoxy.

gadget-
something i just noticed about your setup that you might wanna fix: h202 doesnt last long next to a light source like you have it. maybe wrap duct tape around the jar or shield it somehow. peroxide breaks down when exposed to light, thats why it comes in an opaque brown bottle.

I thought about that, but figured as the H2O2 breaks down it realeases O2, which should be a good thing, I have to top the jar off about every other day, and when I do, I use straight H2O2.

Also, I have been made aware that the light is not needed, as it keeps my temps to high. W/ light I get about 86F, W/O light I get about 76F.
