where to put the hole for air exchange
    #3426919 - 11/30/04 09:00 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

if I'm using a tropical aire humidifier and it constantly pushes air in were is the best place to put the hole so the air is circulating and pushing out co2. i have a two tub setup for heating so only the top 4 inches of my tub along with the lid is exposed to air the rest cant be used, because watter would leak in, soaking everything. so really the lid or the sides is the real question.

also should i put the tropical aire humidifier on a timer?

if you put the hole in any position, just as long as it's not below that water line, would work fine. The humidifier is going to force the CO2 out of the chamber through the hole. If this humidifier is also regulating your humidity completely inside the chamber I would say us a timer. Otherwise you could experience overhydration and run into problems. But thats just what I have been reading and learned.

The hole should be placed in the bottom of the chamber, C02 is a heavy gas and settles to the bottom of the tank . Supply fresh air from the top , expell bad out the bottom .
Good question most folks think just cause you got constant air flow that there is no need to remove CO2 , you do and you are on the right path . Make sure you cover the hole with some poly or micropore tape to slow chances of contams from entering the hole , also be ready to play with humidity levels , start small than make bigger as needed if needed .
Good Luck
