verm in the bottom of the terrarium? hmm, i think you want perlite in the bottom, not vermiculite.

also, for air exchange and moisture, id start out running it 30 mins every 2 hours and see how that does for you unless you have a digital timer and can set it for intervals less than 30 mins.

also, its hard to understand your sentences bro, work on that and more people will help you. Another thing, this isn't for the advanced forum.

I would personally use a coolmist. The air output is more and the air is perfectly humid, but you may still need the moist perlite unless your filling the whole rubbermaid with casing. But only use one output with the coolmist, not two like is suggested in the tek. Also use a 1.5in diameter tube ( such as a sump pump tube) instead of the recommended one inch clear plastic tubing. Run it for 2 mins 6-8 times a day.
