Important Question
    #3188764 - 09/27/04 11:38 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I will be going away for 6 days and I manually fan. I have a small casing and 2 cakes in there. The cakes are starting to form knots but no pins yet. What should I do to get air exchange in my terriaum while I am gone? I heard someone used a CO2 drainage hole and I was wondering if that worked.

I cannot find any geo-lite around here. Are there any other ways?

could use perlite. I have some decorative gravel, used in fish tanks, in mine along with perlite, works for me.

Are there any other methods because I don't know if I have enough time to buy some airstones.

Drainage holes is your best bet..put in a number of 2 inch ones stuffed with polyfil at the bottom of the chamber. Tyvek over the holes would work as well. Coffee filters at least but they really only keep out dust and stuff and are not good contam barriers so you'd be better with polyfil or somthing. Neglecting teks just use this and work ok. Just might not be the best. Hopefully you have a timer for your light or they get indirect sunlight and perilite for humidification?

I only have coffe filters should I put like 2-3 filters on 1 hole? How many drainage holes do I need to have? Also do the drainage holes affect humidity?

1in. holes are plenty big enough and way easier to stuff with polyfil BTW scatmanrav IME. One coffee filter thickness will allow your chamber to breathe a bit easier RC and it will affect the RH somewhat but you really don't have any choice as your not automated :frown: As far as how many holes thats a million dollar question that will depend on your inside and outside RH levels. with 1in. holes you could put 1-2 in each side and 1 on each end as a suggestion :wink: GL and get automated my friend!
