bleach fumes
    #1593333 - 05/30/03 03:31 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

curiously, would bleach used in the humidifier and the tupperware
container that the aquarium heater sits in cause fumes that may be
detrimental to an otherwise healthy casing?

I topped both items off with water and some bleach and a couple days
later, they don't look very healthy.

I feel like I've made this mistake before...

anyone have any thoughts?

I really need these oyster mushrooms to fruit, otherwise I'm outta prints...

:frown:

Bleach can be added to coolmist-type reservoirs, but in VERY sparing amounts. A few mL per gallon, along those lines.
For protecting the reservoir, I think occasional peroxide addition is the way to go, as this will have more of a fidge factor.

I've had this happen to me too, or at least
it sounds like similar results to those that I
had when I started using bleach in place
of peroxide in my setup.

my pleurotus did not react well to it at all.

suntzu, I'm guessing that by indicating that
only 'VERY sparing amounts' should be used
that she is right; excessive bleach can be
problematic in the terrarium?

(assuming because of the fumes).

I am curious about this also, good topic....

Has anyone thought of using OxyClean in there? It does the same thing as bleach, it just releases oxygen instead of chlorine.

I've heard that a drop of iodine in a gallon of water works also.

Peace,

can anyone directly address the question at hand?

bleach in the terrarium environment, bad or not?

if so, why?
