Need a Way to Lower Humidity...
    #412365 - 10/03/01 12:46 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Hello Again,
The Temple has a medium sized tank cased with PF Classics- We cased right into the tank, meaning we didnt put any perlite floor, or cups of perlite- At the time, we thought perhaps it wouldn't be enough to keep the humidity up- but it was a chance we were willing to take- Now, 3 days later, I switched on the light, and the walls are driping with condnsation- I know this cant be good, stagnant water will spoil and make bad things happen- So, I have been fanning the tank out like mad, but the tank is still sweating- SHort of leaving the top up, (which I dont know if I could do, the myco is popping up through the top verm layer) what can a girl do to lower humidity- We also have a small fish tank bubbler blowing fresh air into the tank, but its so weak, it is having no effect-

Should we stop worrying, or is this going to invoke the Demons of Green Mold?
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I forgot to mention, we used alot of alchol in the sterlization process, will that inhibit growth, I ask cause we all smell a stron alcholy odor in the tank....

Just leave the lid open a bit.

What does "We cased right into the tank, meaning we didnt put any perlite floor, or cups of perlite" mean?

sounds like gadgets old time lapse movie- check it out:

looks like the walls of his were pretty condensated as well-

could you wipe off the condensation from the walls with a paper towel? perhaps not having it stand on the walls may lower it... HQ cased into a 2 1/2 gal terrarium before and didnt have any real problems with stagnant water (well, not problems at all, actually). had (from the bottom up) perlite, coir, substrate, coir- all built around a bubbler in the middle and hand fanned once a day just when she was checking on it... it was prolly smaller than your setup though.
