need help got pics

Whats going on everyone?
I have been at my experiment for about a month maybe two i went on spores101.com and got a syringe of golden teacher spores. it took about three weeks to a month to get to my house. i soaked rye berries in water for a day and then left them in a ziplock for another day because i was not ready to pressure cook them yet. i pressure cooked four jars of the rye berries for only about a half hour. i inoculated them jars and put them in the bottom draw of my dresser. i then made an incubator and put them in it. two were contaminated. i threw them away and took the remaining jars and once fully colonized i grain to grain transfered them to twelve smaller jars. once the smaller jars fully colonized i cased them by putting about an inch of wet verm on the bottom of a foil cooking pan. then i put a layer of the colonized rye seed on top and another wet verm layer on top. i made a verm brown rice flower and water mixture and flattened it out put it on a foil cooking pan and put some colonized rye on that. i put everything into my fruiting chamber and that is where i am at nothing is happening and i need some help it has been a week for the rye berries cased in verm and about five days for the brown rice flour verm chuncks.
this is my setup.
my  fruiting chamber looks like this.
it is made from two rubbermaid bins on in another with the one on the bottom using a fish tank heater that comes in a box that looks like this.
it has hydroton on its bottom and two water bottles with an air pump that pushes bubbles into each bottle.
i have two led light bulbs in the lights and i cut the top of the rubbermaid bin to allow in the light.
i took a ziplock bag and taped it to the top to keep humidity in.
my lights and air pump on on a timer on for nine hrs and i have two tank heater that are always on.
i have a humidity gage that reads about 85% and a thermometer that is about 73-77 degrees.
is there anything i should do to encourage pinning?  i am thinking i may need some fresh air but i am worried about contamination. please help.

You do need fresh air. One very important requirement for pinning and fruit development. You should try using a Shotgun FC instead of the tub in tub setup you have currently. Look here:

the only reason i am using the tun in tub is because the room i am using gets kinda cold and i wanted to raise the temp. it was about 60-65 i was looking for 70-75

70-75 is optimal... no doubt but your real issue is NO FAE. If your cakes/tray is 100% colonized, then you need Fresh Air Exchange in encourage pinning. If your still colonizing the tub, then your tub in tub (with out lights) is perfect. If your adamant about the temps you want then I would suggest a heating blanket on a timer or space heater on the same.

The fact is that FAE is way more important, IMO, then the temp variance your speaking to. My last tub was fruited at room temps averaging maybe 68 degrees so if it was me, I'd fruit them at the 65 degree temps. I know some people here have fruited and colonized in lower temps. What ever you try Best of luck.

once your at 100% colonized your chances of contamn is low. if you decide to use a SG FC then build it to spec ,they work great. If your gunna mod your current set up, and your making bigger holes, then maybe use some poly.

Your setup could actually work but you would need to open and fan that sucker A LOT and since there are proven eassier methods, why fuss about . A fan may be overkill and end up drying out your cakes IMO.

Hope that helps and have fun.

im thinking a computer fan on a timer for a half hr every three or four hrs and keep the air pump on at all times
