30 min stackable stealth hydopod <$20
    #2924447 - 07/24/04 09:54 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

so i got motivated tonight after reading about successes using the pf tek with edibles and decided to build a terrarium for cakes. i havent done cakes in years and really dont like the daily effort involved in dealing with them. so i look around my house and found enough things to make a poor man hydropod which is stealth and stackable. this took me about 30 minutes including time it took me to find stuff lost in my piles of junk. though this didnt cost me anything, i estimated the cost would be under 20$ and ill itemize that below:

5 gal bucket $5
3 gallon cheapo black planter $2-3
lid for 5 gal bucket (preferably white to allow light in) $3
~2-3 lbs of geolite @ 90 cents per lb = $1.80-2.70
cheapo/small aquarium air pump $4-6
aquarium air stone $2
3 ft aquarium tubing $1?

total $19-$21

additional tools needed:
box cutter/knife
drill + bit (bit smaller than geolite but not too small)

procedure:

drill 'many' holes in the bottom of the 3 gallon planter

cut a notch in the lip of the 3 gal planter to allow the air tubing to pass between the planter and the 5 gal bucket it will be snug against [upper left corner of the bucket in the pic below]


fill planter with 2-3" of geolite and run hot water through it until the geolite and bucket are clean (geolite will stop leeching off orange/brown color)




attach air stone to tubing and put the stone in the bottom of the 5 gal bucket


take the 3 gal planter that has the washed geolite in it and insert it into the 5 gal bucket that contains the air stone with the air tubing running up the side being sure the notch in the 3 gal is aligned to the tube so it doesnt cut off air flow.

fill with water until the water line is a little above the bottom of the 3 gal interior planter

cut a notch in the side of the 5 gal lid so the air line can be run sideways and still allow another bucket to rest on top.


hook up the air pump and you're set.

edit:
i forgot to add that if you use opaque lids or plan on stacking them in an out of the way place, i would recommend you install 1-2 white leds per container. they are low power dc and locally available and easy to wire. basically just run a speakerwire pair to each pod and connect them all at the same 5v power source (either one of those ac/dc transformers at radioshack or use an old computer power supply)

This is a great design if you are tight on space. I don't know that I would call it stealthy though. But if your story is good enough, pol-pol may buy it. lol
