Ok, this morning I was day dreaming while taking my shower and thaught of a nice way of keeping the humidity levels ideal by using a fish pump, piece of cloth, a bottle, and of course some water. The idea is pretty simple, get the cloth situated so that some of it is in the water just enough to soak water up to the top and keep it slightly damp. Have the air pump's hose running into the side of the bottle but out of the water, a bubble stone might come in handy to keep out possible contams or you could cover the end of the hose with a piece of a coffee filter or something. You'll need to cut a small hole in the bottle cap (around half the size of the cap would probably work) so that there's actually enough air pushing to put the moisture into the terrariums air. After that place it in your terrarium and turn on the pump. Anyway, the advantages I would see in using this is that you could regulate how much humidity is being put in the air simply by lowering or raising the water level in the bottle so that the clothe soaks more water up to the top. Another advantage is that its pretty simple to do and doesn't take up much room in your terrarium. Another idea that someone said there neighbor used was filling the bottle 3/4 full with water and the rest with poly-fil and then putting the hose into it with a bubble stone on it. I'm guessing they where putting the stone into the water since poly-fil doesn't hold water that easy. Either way should work fine.

Ralphster44 & The FSR! All thats stated above is for humor and a lie!!
Well, actually a optimal form of doing this is via the method I devised utilizing a perlite bubbler with a mason jar, perlite, h2o2(peroxide 3%) and it works wonders, the cloth would bread contams. The peroxide and the fact that perlite contains 0 nutritional value makes it a optimal material for such use... Creates wonderful humidity too.
