air circulation

Hey everyone!

I'm a bit of a newbie. I started growing a kit I bought, in a bucket, with limited success. I've now switched to an aquarium, sitting in a shallow bath of water, heated with an aquarium heater. I've also got a small flouro light on top, which I plan to use as required. I've got some spore prints on the way and I'm gonno use the PF Tek method. My question is reguarding air exchange. I'd like to automate my system as much as possible, so I don't have to be fanning it all the time. From what I've read it sounds like the way to go is to get a small air pump and set it up in some kind of a filter box. Can someone tell me how often I should run the pump (should I put it on a timer?), will the small gap in the corner of my aquarium be sufficient to allow air to circulate etc, etc. What are people's experiences? Has anyone out there got a system they think is good?

By the way this is an absolutely brilliant site. Full marks to everyone involved.

I'm really enjoying my new hobby!

Take care everyone,

Hey. What's up? I have both my grow chamber's set up that way. I have two air pumps going to each chamber. They pump into a bottle filled with a 1:10 solution of water and hydrogen peroxide. You can put plastic steel wool in the containers to help with your humidity also.. These pic's might help you out. Make sure the opening's of your water bottles are above your drip shield. This set-up has both increased my humidity and air exchange. Works wonderfully.Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony. Hippie Chick
