terrarium for poo?
    #1529563 - 05/08/03 02:24 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

My friend wants to use this plastic file storage container as a box to directly spawn poo into.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00006IA6M/102-900914-9148928?v=glance&s=office-products&n=507846&me=A3T4TT2Z381HKD&vi=pictures&img=14#more-pictures
Except his will be solid black and opaque. He thinks it would be a perfect size for his small scale operation. His only concern is that the box doesn't seal very well. The top just kind of snaps on at the handles and it has a small lip. It definitely does not seal well, but it seems like it would still work. Does anyone think that this might be a problem? Anyone else have experience with boxes like this?

He could always add a gasket, something like that 3 dollar roll of weather stripping that 1/2 inch wide and made from foam rubber....

I was thinking about adding some sort of gasket, but is it really necessary? How important is it that the terrarium is airtight?

It helps for air exchange but will hurt the humidity a little, and there is a slight chance of contams. If you can keep the humidity up then its fine, if not, like a foaf, he got some of the weather stripping and that worked great.

Since the poo and casing will be the only things keeping the terrarium humid, I think my friend will go with the weather stripping. Thanks a lot guys. You were a big help! :wink:

that'll work but your gonna have to make a window on the lid using saran wrap or clear plastic so the light gets through good!

Staples sells a file box very similar to the one in the pic only with better (air tight) handles that click down onto the sides making an airtight seal.and the lid is clear as well as the bottom.
