There are setups that do just that, some of them you can even hook up to your computer for an unbelievable amount of control and convienience, although this is probably massice overkill. These are the setups people use with especially fragile or needy reptiles and amphibians like certain dart frogs and species like that, or when growing things like orchids in the tank which require a cross draft, and hence a computer controlled fan. (They're very fickle.) They've also got great humidity producing devices and whatnot, but it's all rather expensive, and I don't have any links or info for that stuff anymore...

I mentioned somewhere else that mycology, though it may be fun, is not at the top of my hobby list. It might be obvious now one of the things that is. :wink:

U could run a fish tank pump through an h2o/h2o2 bubbler and have a fish tank heater in it. This would achive air exchange, heating, and some humidity, though u cannot easily adjust the amounts. A lot of trial and error would be nessecary to get it at optimum. I dont think u can get much humidity from this method though, but I think if u used one of those long bubbling rocks and a deep long container u might be able to get enogh humidity depending on the size of the grow chamber and substrate used. To cold shock u could just turn the heater off and put ice cubes in the bubbling chamber and insulate it with some foam or something so it lasts a while. How long do u cold shock for anyway? A day?
