Too many water particles in Terrarium
    #2102184 - 11/13/03 04:43 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I am using a large rubbermaid container as the terrarium using a Vics Ultrasonic Humidifier. I have the humidity setting all the way down, the nozzle turned to the smallest opening, and I am using a series of 4 64oz water bottles with vinyl tubing connecting each, at least 10 ft total. The problem is that there is still too much water vapor in the air, which is causing large amounts of water droplets to collect on the cakes and sides of the container, which then leaves them more prone to contamination, so I hear. Are there any other methods to reducing the water particles? I am keeping the terrarium at or close to 80 deg. F. I am afraid that if I use more bottles, the air pressure will be too low and not enough gas exchange will occur in the terrarium. Please help, I am just starting to pin, and contams are the last thing I want.

I was hoping that would be a last resort, I'm on a budget, and I just got one for my light. Any other ideas? Also, I was under the impression that putting the humidifier on a timer makes it ineffective for gas exchange alone...
