A question on air pumps.
    #2841610 - 06/30/04 12:07 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey Shroomerites, hope your evenings are going alright, I just need to know something about air exchange in my fruiting chamber. It is a PMP setup, and I'm afraid the pump I have running now doesn't give a high enough exchange rate. The package says it can be used for aquariums up to 10 gal. and has no technical specs... so what does this mean for the life of mushies in a 30 gal. rubbermaid with some hydroton? Do I need to get a bigger pump or anything? I'd appreciate any help, thanks!

well i had large containers, maybe 30 or so gallons, and one single elite 801 pump did the job nicely. i think a single line does the job nicely.

here is what i did, I took a big trashbag and fitted it with the hose from the airpump to determine how long it took to balloon it up. Took 15 mins, try that, should give you an idea of how long positive pressure will force air exchange.

Your fine. You need to remember that the pump is not rated to keep shrooms alive. 30 pump for a 30 gallom tank  is for a 30 gallon tank with fish in it. Shrooms need far less oxygen then fish  :thumbup:
