Automated air exchange questions..
    #1801540 - 08/11/03 02:04 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hey everyone,

My friend is planning for that fateful day when he actually has some fully colonized jars to fruit. He's not going to be able to fan 3 - 4 times a day - that thing called work gets in the way... anyway, he has been looking at using an aquarium air pump to use for air exchange. Narrowed down to 2 models - one moves 150 liters per hour and 1 moves 200 liters per hour. Both in price range (30 - 35 US).
Terrarium is clear tupperware - 16" h x 22" w x 16" d (approx) and will be humidified with 1 1/2 - 2" of perlite. Questions are these:

1). Will the air pump provide enough air exchange?

2). Do you just run the tube in from the top and let it hang? Or should you use an air stone or some other disperser on the end?

He can still fan 1 or maybe 2 times per day, but thats about all.
Many thanks in advance for any help.

Get the larger volume pump and put it on a timer. Adjust the timer to provide optimum conditions.

Run the tubing to an airstone submerged in a small container of water and h2o2. A small quantity of perlite can be added to the container to boost humidification, if needed.

You may have to cut exhaust holes in your terrarium, depending upon how air tight it is. Place the holes near the bottom of the terrarium and filter with discs or polyfil.

When he was fruiting cakes my friend had great results with this setup. Good luck.  :smile:
