multiple terrarium setup
    #1869918 - 09/01/03 02:02 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

i was reading here and i was wondering if the Ultra Sonic Humidifier Setup could be altered to work with say 5 rubbermaids? and with the ultra sonic humidifier, can it be a cool mist one? would that be possible? if so where can i find the plans to build one, or something similar too it, one that has the humitiy for the boxes as well, thanx if somebody can help.

I'm sorry, but I don't know the answer to your question. There's one thing I'd like to point out though: when you hook up 5 terraria, you're creating a pathway for contams from one terrarium to the other four. So if you want to be on the safe side, keep the terraria seperated.

You can build a big one out of one of these

I think it is possible to use a cool mist to supply 5 rubbermaids without risking cross contamination as long as they are not connected in series, which would make difficult to get even amount of humidity going to each one. By the time air flow got to the 5 chamber it would be too dry.
Im sure that if you go to your local home improvement store you figure out how to split the hose coming from the coolmist into five, then connent each of the five hoses to the rubbermaids. Although I would not use a cool mist alone u might also need moist perilite, cuz coolmist split five ways wont cut it.

Agree, when typing my reply I already knew I wasn't conveying what I meant exactly, my fault. What I was trying to point out is that if something happens with your humdifier causing it to disperse contam spores along with the humid air, you'll contam 5 terraria at once. Whereas if you use 5 seperate humidification systems, one for each terrarium, you only risk contaming one terrarium. Hooking up terraria in whatever way simply induces an extra risk, which is something you can easily avoid IMO.

Run a cool mist 24/7 and use a ultrasonic every few hours to take the place of misting.

No real specs needed. I just made a box out of wood and lined it with plastic. Could be just about anysize I guess. I do know it can be quite a bit bigger cause I had no probs with humidity.

so you used a cool mist running 24/7 and it caused no problems? so does the cool mist allow co2 exchange and does it keep the rh? or does the sonic humidifier keep the rh?

You should move on to grains and casings bro, for all the work you'd get a lot more bang for your buck.

That kicks ass, poke smot. My dream one day is to have enough room for something that big and organized.

ok so what i did was, i bought a shelving unit thats stackable for 20bux, i picked something up sort of like the portable closet to encased my shelving unit, i am going to pick up my cool mister tommorow, picked up my humidity gauge ( i dont know the proper name ) and then my temp gauge as well. i've got about 7 small rubbermaids which i will use for my casings to go into. So your saying for every 6 jars, i should get one ounce / flush?
