Fish Tank Pump for FAE
    #11235271 - 10/12/09 09:32 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I have a fish tank pump rated for a 65 gallon aquarium in my FC, which is 35 gallons.  Will it provide enough FAE?  I'm not sure exactly how much air fish need, and I'm assuming it's less than mushrooms, so I don't know if a 65g pump is good enough for a 35g FC.

Did he dream about dragons? Did he dream about deer? Did he whisper  he names of friends who were near?
What songs did they play, and how far away? Why did he whisper, why did she scream?
What does the sound of a screen door mean?
Who talks on the hill? Who goes to the cellar, can you feel the chill? Where does the river, when will the wind?
How far are the mountains? Where do they end? Why would the church?
Did the service begin? Tell me who died, and tell me who cried.
Help me hide in the skin of a deer, my zippered-up bag in the mouth of a stag so swiftly I go through rows of does,
it flows, it flows, it flows, it flows all over the hill where the green grass grows.

If you were to place the bubblerstone in a cup of water it would do a fairly good job. I would still recommend fanning a couple times a day. Are you using perlite as well?

Fish tanks can be used and work but if you don't have a dusty place I would recommend a shotgun terrarium instead of messing with the fish pump, I've tried the fish pump and its just easier to automate your FAE with something like a shotgun terrarium.

Good luck.

Not sure what the flow rate is, it doesn't say on the pump or on the site where I bought it.  I'm using a blend between a PMP and shotgun.  I have water in the bottom with the air stones.  Then the cakes will sit in an elevated tray with a couple inches of perlite.  Even without the perlite, I'm at 97% RH, so humidity isn't a problem; FAE is all I'm worried about at this point.  I'm testing everything to make sure it's working how I want it before it gets put into service.

U need to switch that around because the perlite will eventually clog your airstones and it makes for a pain in the ass..

Just make a regular shotgun, then put a glass of water with a air stone in it on top of the perlite in the corner if you want.

I think you misunderstood what I'm saying.  I saw another member do this with amazing success.  The tray with perlite is elevated, so there's no way it could clog anything.  I've had it running for a couple days with no problems to see where the humidity would stabilize without perlite.

i guess if you want you could put the air stones in a jar even if its just to see the volume of air emitted. but i agree with using something that will not clog the stones. i have mine buried in the round clay balls they use for hydroponics. no clogging yet but we will see.

if you do bubble in a jar you can decide for your self if there is enough air exchange.
