air diffuser?!
    #3003228 - 08/14/04 03:12 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

hello guys i went to a pet shop to buy stuff for my grow needs and i saw an air diffuser. what exactly is this thing doing? i bought 2 air pumps, tubes and an air diffuser.
1)How the air difuser helps?

2)if i'll connect the air dif. with my 2 air pumps the air will go in the tarrarium. but how will the air then go out of it so it wont build co2 ?

3) do i need air diffuser and air stones too? or one of these two?


thank you very very much!!

If you are using a rubbermaid tub, your air pump will force air into the stones. This air will force stale air in your chamber out of the box seams that aren't air tight. If you are using some type of air tight box, you can make a couple small holes (under the outer rim) to let out the air.

try to get the holes as low as possible without letting the perlite or water or whatever flow out. do this because CO2 is heavier than air, and will flow out of the tub better.
