Looks good.. Only thing I can think of to improve is to have that hose from the humidifier running all the way across the top of the tank and putting some small holes facing down every 6 inches or so.

Or is that saran wrap on the top?

that's a good idea. If my friend does that should he seal the end of the tube with silicone glue or just leave it open?

I don't think you need to run the holes with the tube, the transported air will disperse naturally with whatever goodness it carries. But if you constrain it to a tube with little small holes, that creates resistance and the pump won't pumpas much air. So I wouldn't run the tube along the top with the holes.

very nice!

and yes, you dont want any low points in that humidifier hose where water could collect and block the vapor.

Thanks I will tell my friend to cut the tubing and rest it on that black piece of metal for his bench press so there are no low points

I was just thinking of the air entrainment thing Mcman is always talking about. I have it kind of like that on my terrarium. (A 5 level shelf covered in plastic, there is a garden hose running across the top with holes underneath) it works very well.

Nice, big terrarium. If I got it right, it uses 3 means of humidification: perlite, vaporizer and the bubbler, and 2 means of airation: vaporizer and bubbler.
A little overkill if you ask me.

Perlite only and ocasional fanning should work well, or the vaporizer, or perlite and the bubbler.

Read what Shroomgod has to say on humidification:
http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Creek/3715/HumidifierTekv1.1.html

Take into account that when you have cakes in the terrarium, the temperature and humidity will go up a little, so it has no sense trying to trim the setup now to exactly the point it should have later.

My friend mainly wanted the bubbler for airation, because he heard that an ultrasonic humidifier doesn't offer the best gas exchange, and he constantly wanted air to be moving even when the humidifier was off. He figured he'd put it in some water to add to the humidity. He put the perlite on the bottom because he didn't wanna clean up any water that accumulated on the bottom and figured that with the perlite there it would just soak up and add to the humidity. What do you think hes should do? He wants to keep it as automated as he can. so he can leave it alone some of the time.

Would he have to fan with perlite and the bubbler? The tank was for an iguana I don't know if its water tight. When my friend washed it out it held the water pretty well, but he didn't have it in there for a long period of time. Would the perlite really work better than the humidifier? Are you telling me my friend wasted all that money?

yep you did. perlite and fanning twice a day will do as good/better than a humidifier. and with that pump running 24/7 youll probably only need to fan once a day or every 2 days. looks good except for the $60 you spent on that humidifier that you coulda sent me out of the kindness of your heart instead of wasting it on the humidifier.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?

My friend is having some trouble keeping the humidity up. He doesn't think his hygrometers are accurate and wanted to know what you thought the humidity looked like. The sides of his tank aren't "sweating" like the pictures he has seen of other tanks, so he doesn't think it is high enough. Is the sweating good or bad? The perlite has no wtater on it as of now. He's just using the humidifier and the bubbler. The digi hygrometer says 86%rh and as far as he can tell the analog one says approximatly the same.
