perlite and terrarium question...
    #1349579 - 03/04/03 11:28 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Ok well, I have one of those stick air tube things to put air bubbles in a fish tank... I put one of those on the bottom of the rubbermade tub and instead of those geo rock things(i forgot what they are called) I'm going to put perlite. Will the perlite clog up the tiny holes on the rob? Also how much perlite do you think i need? Just about an inch or two from the top of the bubbler rod? Thanks

Maybe you should put the bubbler in a vase of h2o/h2o2 (10:1).

}
}

i read about a feller who atually had his perlite floating in water (2 inches of waterto one inch perlite)

he had a bubbler in the bottom, said it worked great.

depends on what you are working with i suppose.

ummm... this is against perlite regulations... Mike, if you've found something better than say so... otherwise don't be misleading

Quote:

1) Don't use too much water. Use a 2-3 inch layer of perlite and no more than 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water. People seem to make the mistake of adding too much water which doesn't leave enough exposed perlite surface area. 




Quote:

You should add just enough to keep the perlite wet, but not enough to create any standing water which would increase the chances of contamination. Be careful not to overfill.
