Well you never gave any detail on the size of your tub, terr, ect., or the jar you plan on using. In any case I don't think there would be a need for a jar of perlite if you plan on using a bubbler. I use perlite about 2" on the bottom of my tub and a bubbler. However the perlite is not wet. The only reason I have the perlite is to catch the water droplets that may form and fall to the bottom. You don't want any free standing water in your terr........not a good idea. So the job of the perlite is to catch the water and release back into the air. Also if you plan on using a bubbler, it helps to add some H2O2 to the water.
Good Luck!
