need solution for fanning
    #1500724 - 04/28/03 03:15 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

just out of curiousity if someone wanted to avoid fanning, what's their best option? The scenario is a rubbermaid tub, with a straw/dung casing at the bottom. Thanks

That is essentially all that dude uses, with the addition of a cool mist connected by a 3/8 or 1/2 i.d. tube. He never needs to fan, and gets optimal air exchange and humidity after some tweaking.

There are many posts about using a cool mists on the board. you could do a search to find more info.

Coolmist, hummer, fish tank bubbler in a jar.

As stated above :smile:, coolmist is the old soldier.

Any scaled down version of something like this.
:laugh:

Which creates fog like this.

It's not a cool mist but it does the job. At least my oysters think so.

Poor mans pod You'll never need to fan, works with casings or cakes.

tell me, 6T- dog-ulgualion, what kind of tweaking do you recommend, to use a vicks as a do-it-yourself-er?

to use it for all air exchange, you're gonna want to have it running a few hours a day - that would flood my terraria like a rainforest. but if i have to use condensers, it's a big old pain in the ass, and i don't want to go back there.

i have a super-accurate timer, but don't want to sacrifice good humidity for the sake of automatic air exchange. can i make the mist less wet somehow, without being an electrician?  (i didn't understand that tip in the mmgg about soldering the wires together at all)

:tongue:

Does your timer scale down to minutes of hours on/off?

If it does? Try 15 minutes on - every 2 hours. Monitor for a few hours & adjust more or less - as needed.

Something in that range will work, by both providing humidity & fresh air - if you tinker with it.
