polyfill for terrarium air exchange
    #2487929 - 03/31/04 08:06 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hello All

I have searched through the shroomery archives and seen some impressive results using only polyfill for air exchange, ala two holes in the top for fresh air to flow in, and two holes at the bottom for co2 to be pushed out. No fanning. I am considering using the double tub tek (which is two same size rubbermaid containers, with their edges aligned to form one big container) with only polyfill for air exchange.

I am wondering if people have had successes or failures with using only polyfill for air exchange, and any other comments on it.

Thanks!

you need something to move the air...a fan at least....otherwise how is the air gonna circulate?

I was thinking that the co2 flowing out of the bottom holes would create a mild (very mild), but nontheless an effective, suction. This would bring in fresh air, through the top holes, in a constant, slow way, but enough to provide adequate gas exchange,

how is the air getting sucked out when the 2 tuppewares sit together snug? maybe some c02 will go out but it will only pool up then. Get a fish tank bubbler and you will be ok

or you can use the polyfill and just fan once a day instead of 4 or 5 times
