Excellent Humidification Idea!
    #2325790 - 02/12/04 04:37 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I heard these contraptions are incredible, just wondering who has experience with them, I am grabbing a few in a couple days to test em out.

Its called the Tropic-Aire Humidifier/Air Exchanger.  Its made for reptiles to create a fine mist for Humidity and to Pump air into the Tank.  PERFECT!

Heres the Low Down:



Designed to create a healthier environment for reptiles and amphibians from tropical and subtropical regions.  This unique device constantly supplies your terrarium with fresh, humid air.  Eliminates the need for hand spraying, except when needed for dew licking animals.  We have successfully used a similar device for several years with our hermit crabs.  For use with up to a 55 gallon tank.  Unit sits external to the terrarium, so it can be easily hidden from view.  Only the thin output tube sits inside the tank.  To use, you simply fill the humidifier tank with water to the fill line.  The sponge inside the tank will become moist and saturate the air above the water.  This fresh, humid air is then pumped off into your terrarium.  (Click on the image on the right to see a larger view.)

Uses a standard aquarium air pump, which must be purchased separately.  When choosing an air pump, choose a model that produces enough air for an aquarium that is the same size as your terrarium so that the air in the terrarium is exchanged once every hour.  .  (In other words, choose a bigger pump for bigger tanks.)  Each unit stands approximately 12" tall with a 4" x 4" footprint.  Includes the humidifier tank and cover, (2) suction cups, output nozzle with 4 air outlets, humidifying sponge, air diffuser, and air supply tube.



I work alot with aquatics so if you are using one of these I definetly recommend picking up a Check Valve to stop water from leaking into your air pump and shorting out your house :smile:  Also a good idea would be a Filter Box for your Air Pump to make sure its not pumping in Contams.

Let me know if any of you have used this before- I hear nothing but good things and don't see any downsides to this product other than the noise of the pump.

If you want one check out PetSmart they have them for $19.99.  (Just goto SEARCH in the top right corner and type "Tropic Aire")

Or Hit PetDiscounters.com

Thanks, Lemme know what you guys think.
