I give them plenty of moisture (maybe too much)? And some light (8 hours a day single bulb), and mist, and fan out the terranium ect. ect. but they are all really skinney :[ do you think I should lower the heat? Its like 80-90 right now.

Yes, that is too hot! 80 is okay, but 90 probably to much heat for your little friends. Unless they are a tropical cubensis strain like mexican or cambos.

Air exchange seems to be the main problem with skinny mushrooms. You have to fan a lot. 3 times a day is not nearly enough in my friends experience. He would say at least 5 times a day. He would also rocommend a humidifier or aquarium pump for air exchange instead of fanning.

I did an experiment and placed a cake into a clear plastic cylinder shaped pasta container with perlite on the bottom. All the mushrooms were extremly tiny and really thin and only got about 2 inches long max. I didnt fan the container out at all and the humidity was really high in there and the temputure probably higher then my pod that is completly self automated(no need to fan).
