air pump [gas exchange in fruiting chamber]
    #2379437 - 02/26/04 02:00 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hey, I'm spawning to straw in a 34.5"x17.7"x15.7" rubbermaid (111 qt/105 liter)and want to use an  aquarium air pump w/ bubble stones for gas exchange/humidification.  Will this work?  I initially purchased a 5-15 gallon/single outlet aquarium air pump and 5" bubble stone, and now realize this may well not be sufficient for gas exchange.  How powerful of a pump would be appropriate (definitely two bubble stones, I imagine)? Also what would be a good timer schedule for this pump (i believe i read "3 hours on, 3 hours off").
Forgive me if this post betrays any ignorance on my part.  Thanks in advance for any advice.  :smile:

pet store, they're for aquariums. you should just get bigger bubble stones, i've seen some that are like 2 feet long. get a couple of those babies and you're set.

Cool.... should I get a two-outlet air pump, or just a splitter for this one, or just run it through both with this outlet?

10 gal = ~38000 cc so run them long enough to do 38000 cc per aquarium.....i need to run mine about half an hour to get a full air exchange

you need a bubble stone becuase you need to dunk the stone in a perioxide fiiled container and pace it in the chamber this ensure that the air is as clean as possible.
