Adding an air pump to my setup
    #390861 - 09/10/01 11:18 PM (22 years, 27 days ago)

Alright, my FOAF is building a terrarium out of plexiglass that will have the following dimentions: w-29in, L-20in, h-10in. It will be using perlite for humidification. It will be growing pf cakes and possibly casings soon. MY FOAF has recently purchased an aquarium air pump with one output. He wants the terrarium to be basically fully automated, except for picking them of course. What is the best way to set up the air pump so that he will not have to fan but maybe once a day at the most. I have read teks saying to put the pump in a box with a bunch of holes in it with a coffee filter over it and to then place this inside a terrarium with drain holes installed for co2 ventilation. Is this the best way doing it? Also, can someone point me to specific teks regarding making this box to hold the pump. If not, what kind of box is to be used? Also, making this pump quiet is of great importance. Thanks for the help.

Yep, that's the way to do it.
