so you have to much humidity? is that with the casing by its self, or is it with the perlite in it?
I'd think if you fanned a few times more itmight help,IMO.
I havent use an air pump yet, so i don't know really if it would work to lower the humidity?

You need a humidity gauge to test it. Put your aquarium pump on a timer, and keeps tabs on it until you pin down the right timing. There are multiple output capacities on pumps, and you never stated your terrarium size. Not to mention starting humidity and ambient humidity and the difference between. Too many variables to give you a cut and dry answer. Sorry, it's just not that easy when you want to get things perfect.

The aquarium pump idea is sound. Perhaps even look into making a filer box for it also. Another idea if you have a large setup is to pump fresh air in with a hepa filter. If you can humidify the large volumes of air some of these can move, your mushrooms will love the oxygen.

Tremor, Atwar has a good point with hepa filtering your air.

You should also look into calibrating it, or checking to see if it is accurate. Look in the FAQ, I think Anno published a method for testing and calibration. Good luck, and a HEPA filter box for your air pump is highly recommended. Or at least a Tyvek filter box should be sufficient. Then get a timer programmable in minutes and keep your eye on that gauge. I really wouldn't worry about too much humidity as I would too low of humidity. But, the air exchange provided by the air pump will do them good when your not there to fan.

a really good way to lower humidity is to put some frozen bottles of water in the terrarium. the condensation sticks to the bottles. it also lowers the temp, of course, which is good if you are trying to pin. or so i heard.

???
