Terranium Questions!?!?
    #3253014 - 10/19/04 09:27 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Ok, I bought everything for my poor man pod except for the leca. Now, I have a few questions that need to be answered as my jars are starting to become fully colonized.

1. I have found a website that sells LECA or lava rocks for about $2-3 per pound. How many pounds do you think I should order to fill my 45 gallon tub? I have no idea how much to order.

2. With my airpump and bubble stones pushing in air, how big do my air exit holes have to be? I read that I should put them up top so that there is proper C02/02 exchange within the tub. I was thinking to make them mabye less than a half inch, and mabye two of them. I will also put polyfil in the holes.

3. With the pmp set up, will I reach 95% humidity? I want to put up a picture of my ste-up, but stil have to figure out how.

Anyway, I'll take all the help I can get to make a good terranium. thankyou--CB

Do you know how many pounds of geolite was in the bag, and how big is your tub? I want to do mabye 2-3 inches in my tub. Mabye I could estimate what I need with what you bought. And, I'm not sure where to look in my area for that type of stuff so I'm kind of stuck going through online.

You can get lava rock at most hardware stores and it works just as good the only thing is that it is much heaver then geolite but is much much cheaper. The red or the black lava will work fine.
