Wrong forum buddy. This is going to be moved by the moderators very soon. Try looking in the various FAQ's and cultivation information listed on this website before you make a post.

nobody uses the dual chamber terranium anymore because there are many other more efficient ways to grow mushrooms... ie perlite...

That's the basic idea yes. You take a container large enough to accomodate your cakes and mushrooms (so it has to be high enough), put 1" to 2" of wet perlite on the bottom. Many people sterilize the perlite (e.g. in a microwave, wet the perlite, put it in a microwavable container and nuke it for a couple of mins.) before they put it in the terrariums.
The terrariums I use actually accomodate only one cake, so every cake has its own terrarium. This way, you have some more work airing the terrariums and whatnot, but when a contamination hits one of the cakes, it will only screw up one cake.

What I followed was in the advanced cultivation/fruiting chambers portion of the site, found by doing a search on 'terrarium'. Here's the link: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7964
I modified this slightly by spray painting the outside of the aquarium black and using blue lights in the aquarium hood. Since I've got the AC going in my house I also put a heating pad under the aquarium that keeps it warm and humid. I use the aquarium air pump contained in a tupperware container with holes punched in the top covered with a coffee filter for extra air. I don't use the air constantly, just for like 4 hours between fannings. Cost is minimal with this method:
aquarium= $9.00, Walmart
aquarium hood = $9.00, Walmart
spray paint= $2.00 Walmart
hardware cloth = $10.00 84 Lumber (enough to provide hardware cloth for everyone on the shroomry, Christ that's a big roll!)
perlite = <$5.00 any garden center
hydrometer=$3.00 for the cheap kind, garden center
thermometer=$2.00, fish section at Walmart - the kind you stick on a fish tank.
Good luck, hope that helps.

if you are low on cash all you need is a clear tupperware container (as big as you need) and a spray bottle,perlite,hydro peroxide,and lysol or alcohol

tupperware container $5-10
spray bottle $1-2
perlite $3-5
hydro peroxide $1-2
lysol or alcohol $1-2

steps:

1:clean the tupperware container out with lysol or alcohol
2:put about 2" of perlite on the bottom of the tupperware container
3:add filtered or clean tap water about 1"
4:then add hydro peroxide to the top surface of the perlite to stop contams
5:give it light for 1-2 hours a day
6:fan it out 2 times a day
if the numidity is not high enough give the tupperware container some sprays to put more water into the air

notes:set the cakes on the lids then put it on the perlite,you may not need spray bottle if the humidity is high enough 95-100%,you want to see the tupperware container sweat with water,you can use a peice of paper to fan it 2 times day to give it the air exchanges it needs

but if you have more money to spend then try this link

2 shoebox sized sterilite containers = $.88 each
one is the bottom, one is the lid( leaves room for growth)
use duct tape to make a hinge for the lid.
perlite in the bottom 1" thick
aluminum foil to place cakes on.
Each setup like this hold two cakes.(three's a croud)

Total cost no more than $10 including everything.
