My first try at automization....
    #2243212 - 01/15/04 03:41 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Tonight I found myself a little bored and restless so I deciced to try automating one of my terrariums....

I hooked a fish pump and used a splitter to run 2 bubble stones into an empty plastic bottle. I then placed the whole bottle into the terrarium and duct taped the pump the the outside of the lid. The whole thing looked pretty smooth when I got it hooked up, but the question is....Will it work?

Will this provide enough humidity and gas exchange? Will it be better than fanning 5-6 times a day?

Just slap a 12V fan with a filter on the side of a BIG rubber made bin. Then set a timer for 15 minutes on every hour and you'll be in business. Good luck

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

the boss I have a q...

why not run the fan all the time? Is there a disadvantage to this. The problem I see is it drying out the casings. How often would one have to mist?

thanx for the input everyone! My test chamber is at > 90%rh and holding steady. Should I add holes in the bottom to help vent CO2?

It's hard to retain Rh with the fan running at all times.

Ok I have lots of very small pins the casing in my auto terrarium and on a cake in my fishank maintaind by perlite and fanning.

I also have 2 casings in an identical terrarium that is not automated.

I think will be interesting to compare the results of these 3 batches.
