ok... so drill a hole at the bottom of your terranium right above the perlite.... this will serve as the exit whole for the C02 u want to escape..... The blue represents Oxygen and the red represents Co2.... so when u turn the fish pump on (from the outside, also drill another whole on the side for the tubing to go thro and seal it with hot glue...

since the c02 settles at the bottom... and the fishpump is pushing in fresh air, the c02 is then pushed out the bottom... and walla.. there is no need to check to fan or anyting... u can put this on a timer aswell... usually 6-12 hours a day is sufficient.. and these fish pumps only cost like 10 bucks...

Here's my tek

Poorman's Pod

You should keep your holes on top for the same reason I do.

The fundamental principal behind using air entrainment is to sufficiently mix the two (fresh air and stale air) together and then re-distribute them back into the environment in a more balanced way that is then more beneficial to the mushroom crop. Without this sufficient mixing of the gasses present within the grow space, the crops will remain stunted and will likely never reach their optimum potential.

With the poor mans pod, the settling co2 air is met and diffused by a curtain of fresh air rising from beneath the Geo-lite surface. This rising flow of air is created from the air diffuser rod situated below the Geo-lite surface, which is powered by the air pump. The rising air pattern not only prohibits the heavier co2 air from settling down onto the bottom surface as usual but it also simultaneously diffuses the co2 with fresh air as it is distributed back into the environment or grow space where it can be put to good use.

In this way, the poor mans pod creates the same desired phenomenon as offered by more conventional means of air entrainment found in much larger-scale commercial applications where a mixing box is commonly used to accomplish this important task.
