Blue is fine, yellow (can) be fine also, as that's usually metabolic waste. Need a picture to really make a determination though.

The smell definitely isn't healthy, do you have standing pools of water and are you getting enough air exchange?

I can guarantee this small hole w/ a coffee filter you're describing is doing absolutely nothing. For any type of hole to be effective in a fruiting tub, you need several large holes (1/2"++) stuffed with a breatheable material, such as PolyFill. Also, the holes really need to be as level with your casing level as possible.

Your aquarium bubbler and a few good swishes with the lid each day is more than enough to keep contamination at bay.

It's gotta be something else.

I can't tell from here, really need a picture or more description of what has mold on it. Your casings, the chamber walls, what is it?

Breads get many molds. Usually they are green. If it is green, then it is a contam. Especially if it grows and spreads. Blue bruising can look like green and green molds can look bluish ["Umm, are you BLUISH.......you dont look bluish..."] but if it grows or rubs off on a cue tip, its a contam and you need to toss it. Peroxide wont do shit to the mold.

Identify your mold from this page:

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23418

I'd remove that from your fruiting chamber A.S.A.P.
