Setups Questions
    #1204219 - 01/09/03 02:23 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

I got myself a tetratec two outlet air pump... now i have two questions

1. what is polyfill and where can i get it?

2. should i attach the tubing to an Aquarium stone or an aquarium wand (thats just an air stone thats longer)? Do i need to submerse it in water?

3. how do i get rid of the co2? other than fanning... someone told me to drill holes at the bottom and stuff em with polyfill... how big are these holes.

thanks

Polyfill is what stuffed animals are stuffed with. Try the craft and hobby section of the local Walmart or try a sewing store. Sorry I can't answer your other questions.

Polyfill in the bottom of your terranium could possibly introduce contams, because moisture will be drawn into the polyfill. I would just suck it up and fan or upgrade your setup.

I just drill holes and don't stuff them with polyfil. works fine for me.

Holes let humidity and heat escape..you have no problems with contaminates?

I wouldn't worry about drilling holes in your terrarium. Also, it doesn't matter what kind of bubbler you get as long as it produces some sort of air exchange.
