Humidification using corals
    #3220670 - 10/06/04 12:01 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Coral pieces here are very plentiful. Everywhere on the beach as a matter of a fact. So, after asking you guys, I went out to the beach, picked up corals in couple of buckets, soaked in bleach for a day, rinsed, soaked in water for another day, then rinsed again. I put a PMP together with it and WooHOoo! It works. My hygrameter never goes up above 95% in hot towel, but it went all the way to 99% in the pod! Amazing!

Anyways, that isn't what I think might be useful. I turned off the pumps, aired it out, then put the lid LOOSELY back on. This morning, it was reading 92%, 76F. It's been moving around from 92 to 93% over last few hours but very stable. I heard you guys say this is good for casing. I mean, isn't this like ideal for casing as perlite for cakes?

I'm working on the gas exchange part, though. Right now, I have two bubble wands and have the stacked near the side. 1 on top of coral and 1 underwater. I'll check the RH levels at 5 places in the tank to see... Just wanted to throw this out there.

I would imagen coral would be as good as lava rock but wouldn't weigh as much

corals are pretty heavy actually. Almost like pieces of cinder blocks...

Here's what I've got. Temp 76F, ambient humidity 42%(my hygrometer reads 95% with hot towels and 99% with PMP).

2 med pumps doing the pumping.

I'll have to build me another pod for my cakes, because I'm going to try a case in here to see how it works...
