Automtated O2 production in terrarium
    #2048842 - 10/27/03 11:37 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

As i understand it, cased and colonised substrate require high humidity and low CO2 levels to initiate pinning. Would the use of perlite with dilute H2O2 with a small amount of decomposition catalyst be useful in a terrarium for slowly and constantly producing O2 - maintaing a relatively low CO2 content, while providing a sterile environment and high humidity as per the standard perlite/H2O terrarium? Have I overlooked something? Has anyone tried or considered trying this?

Thanks! :smile:

You don't need a catalyst, h202 decomposes pretty quickly on its own. That's why they keep it in a brown bottle; even a little bit of light and it will start to decompose. Plus it would take quite a bit of h202 to keep oxygen levels up. This would get very expensive. You're better off just buying a cheap aquarium air pump for like 8 bucks.
