If you use H2O2, be sure to consider this...
    #4313819 - 06/19/05 03:32 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Guys/gals who are using an H2O2 dilution to mist casings or terreriums. I thought of this and mabey you guys have already thought of it but I figured it couldnt hurt to share. Hydrogen Peroxide is a preventative agent used to keep molds and bacteria from gaining a foothold in your casings or terreriums. Notice when you buy hydrogen peroxide from your local supermarket, it comes in a dark bottle. This is because UV light causes H2O2 molecules to break up into free radicals...specifically,

H2O2 + light------> H2O + O2(Radical Species) (also this equation is not balanced for all you chemists out there) but just to get the point across. Those radicals are not necessarily harmful to your casing but water and oxygen radicals are not responsible for protecting your setups from nasty contams. If you are going to use H2O2, be sure to wrap your squirt bottles with a few layers of duct-tape or use a dark colored bottle, or simply store bottle in a dark place. Just make sure not to allow your H2O2 (stock solutions or dilute) to be in direct contact with light, otherwise you are essentially doing nothing to protect your casings/other teks. Just a thought...

the extra 02 (from light exposure) in a bubbler really helps to give the chamber extra oxygen without risking sterilization of your casings.

i do 50/50 H202/water.
