I find myself in a predicament. I just purchased a new bag of pearlite for the bottom of my second terrarium (a fish tank). when i opened the bag, the pearlite seemed to be dirty. will this put my shroomies at jepordy? also, what is the best way to make an airtight seal ontop of my fish tank

just add peroxide to the water you mix the perlite with and you should be fine...you can always work on rinsing it out, but make sure to wet it so you dont breath in the dust...its real bad bad for you...cancer bad

Go to a hardware store , get a roll of door seal
it's cheap about $5.00
Sealed mine up real good

as far as the seal on the top goes,buy a role of the Glad Press and seal.It works great and you can use it over and over.I used it to cover the hole in the top that lets light in,and it works great.Just make sure the surface your sticking it to is nice and dry.
$2.69 cant beat that.

cool, thanks for the suggestions guys... in the mean time, i experimented with saran wrap with a sheet of plexiglass ontop to hold pressure, the rh, has stayed around 96 for about 12 hours now, i think i will just keep using that, thanks again guys
