Air exchange?
    #4522235 - 08/11/05 03:42 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

IF you have air being pumped into the terranium, threw the water wont some air have to leave? and with that air wont their be humiditiy loss?

I have three problems i need to resolve, humidity, heat , and light

For humidiity i imagine ill use perlite and some sort of bubbler. For heat i am quite stumped, perhaps a heat lamp for lizards on some sort of a timer, does anyone know of a really readilly avialable source of heat that i can use, i dont have any petcos in walking distance i got no wheels and no money. For light I am also kind of confused, if i pass a compact flouro light through a bluye case will it make a blue spectrum?

If you pass a flouro light through anything it will remove all other spectrums, and only allow some to pass, it wont create, or enhance anything...so dont do it.

Heat for what? Not for fruiting... if you cant get a fish tank heater and read up on tub in tub incubators, then just stick the jars in a warm closet to incubate, over 75 degrees.

>IF you have air being pumped into the terranium, threw the water wont some air have to leave?
Of course.

>and with that air wont their be humiditiy loss?
Of course, and more will be created from pumping air through water replacing it.

Build a PMP, geolite and water with a bubbler under it, or perlite could be used (far messier). That will solve humidity. For light, use a flouro, 12/12..heat was covered above.

Well as for humidity. if you use perlite, you won't need a bubler. for heat, either make a PMP or get a heating pad from the pet store/walmart. the PMP method works great because it has a temp. set on it and a heating pad will just give you options 1-5 warm to really hot. as for the light i beleive and don't quote me but i'm pretty sure the spectrum of the light is directly related to the light. if the spectrum is blue then it will stay blue although the color will be changed. my question is are you trying for the blue cuz a regular light works fine.
