Adding an air pump
    #420950 - 10/10/01 05:02 PM (16 years, 11 months ago)

I am adding an air pump/bubbler to my perlite-bottom terrarium today. Can someone please remind me of the correct on/off cycle? Will this totally eliminate the need for fanning and misting? Do I still start with wet perlite just like before I had the bubbler? Do I add a vent-hole and if so, where do I locate it top or bottom? THANKS PEOPLE!!!

Yes, if done properly, you won't have to air out the tank.

Yes, start with wet perlite as normal.

Put the holes at the bottom of the tank, since CO2 is heavier than O2. Additionally, it is better to make this hole one way (use some water and some tubing, and set it up the way the sliding piece goes into a bong.)

Timing cycles kind of depend on how fast your pump works. If you are slowly changing the air, and the air going in has high humidity, you might do best to leave it on all the time. Some of the best set-ups I have looked at are meant to have them on all the time. However, the faster and drier your air will be going into the tank, the shorter you want to leave it on. Also, the smaller the tank, the shorter you will need to have the pump on at a time.

As a general time span, try turning on the pump two or three times a day for an hour each time.

Thanks for the reply. My pump is a Rena Air100 (I think thats kinda small) I was gonna run a 3-foot tube (with in-line filter)into 20 gallon box into jar of co2. Im a little confused abount the vent hole (one way??) not quite sure what you mean. Also, whats a bong?... KIDDING
