Can a pump that's capable of 1,500 cc/min efficiently air out a 10 gallon bucket terrarium?

what are the dimensions of that 10 gallon terrarium?
lenght X height X width = area
should exchange air 2 or more times an hour.

Actually the answer is right there. 10 Gallons = 37.854118 litres = 37 854.118 cc. Thus if your pump puts out 1500 cc/min it takes 37900/1500 = 25 minutes per air exchange. which means you get 2 per hour, which is more than enough. hope this helps...

Get a trash bag that is approximately the same size as your terrarium. Insert a pump hose into it, turn it on. The time it takes for it to fill with air is the time that it will take for your terrarium to be completely vented one time.

The rated output of the pump is going to be way different that the auctual output. The rated output is with nothing attached under ideal conditions. When you add a few feet of hose, put the hose underwater, add an airstone, put some bends in the line, put the pump in a corner and throw a pillow over it cause it is loud, ect it is going to put out way less than it's rated output. The auctual output would be really hard to calculate.

You have a 10 gallon bucket, I'd just get an airpump that says it is designed for 10 gallon aquariums.

the actual output would prolly vary no more than 500 cc's per minute which will still get u a good ammount of air exchange, remember manuallyfaning ppl only do it 3 times a day or sometimes more, with the maximum output of the air pump u'd be getting 2 full exchanges per hour...lets jus say its half as efficient, so it only gets 1 per hour...plenty.... i would rate u flying upstairs but i dont have enough time lol, maybe later today if i can remember
