Anyone else use a VICKS Cool Mist....??
    #2530876 - 04/06/04 10:44 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I'm presently using a Vicks Cool Mist for air exchange and it seems to be working well.  I have it running 1/2 hour on, 1 1/2 hours off. I think this should be ok considering the size of my terrarium. What do you think? Sound ok? Anyone having good or bad experiences with a cool mist(preferably the same model), is encouraged to reply!! :grin:

I do have a hygrometer! My RH is 90%-95%. I'm just curious if anyone else has used a cool mist, how it worked out, and how they used it.

yeah, a friend had one and it worked well, but finds it easier to buy dual aquarium air pumps and have the tubing come in on opposite sides and hand misting once daily w/ H2O2 water. I would suggest that you put duct tape or something on the edges of the filter. It seemed to me that the filter wasn't exactly filtering since the air could easily get in from the edges of the filter. I did think it was a plus that the KAz filters the air it shoots into your terrarium.

That pic was taken a few days before I made my casings. I noticed the same thing and taped around the filter with duct tape before I started to fruit them.

No, theres no perlite in there, just looks like it. That pic was taken a few days before I made my casings!

Good idea on the filter

Magash, I see you have a "cool mist"!! Looks like you probably run yours 24/7, am I right? What is that thing on the other side of your green house?
