Has Anyone had Issues....
    #3245163 - 10/11/04 11:22 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

especially with the finer perlite clogging bubble walls in a PMP? It seem even with a Profile 5500 pump (two bubble walls) the air exchange is insufficient.

Any suggestions?

I know what you are dealing with. It cakes up like cement. I've had that with these perlites on the bottom. If you prewash the perlite with some water, you'll have no problems. Take a few minute rinse out your terrarium now. Pour a lot of water it in and then a strainer to stir water around and pick up all the perlite. Then rinse out the bottom. It's what you get for buying perlite from 99 cent store.

Good luck!

Sam
