automatic airing
    #531760 - 01/26/02 09:15 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

I thought of upgrading my setup as I found it very tedious to have to air the terr three times a day by flaping a lid! So, I need an automatic air exchange happening 3-4 times a day:

Option 1: have a small fan (computer fan) blowing the air INto the terr and perhaps a filter disc covering the fan (but wouldn't doing this burn the fan out?)

Option 2: To have a similar fan sucking the air OUT of the terr, while there is a hole covered with a filter disc (this seems a better option than No. 1)

Option 3: have some sort of fishtank bubbler providing the air exchange (I have never even seen one of these so I dont know how it works)

The problems I can see with Options 1 and 2 is to find a small fan that would work with the mains circuit (any suggestions?)

Any sort of help would be greatly apreciated!!

put an aquarium air pump in a gladware or tupperware or something like that with a filter disc put somewhere in the tupperware and the power cord and air hoeses need holes. Then you need to seal these up with silicone. You dont need a bubble stone and if you are using perlite you dont want one because it will cause your humidity to be too high. You are probably going to want a hygrometer to adjust your air pump.

Well, the pc fan will work.
My terrarium is large, 2x6x6.
I use a fish tank bubbler in the bottom, cord runs out, sealed around the cord, into a pail of water (just because i read somewhere tank bubblers must be run in water) and the air is drawn in a hole at the top which is covered with a 99.97% filter.
I prefer having air being drawn in flowly, rather than FORCED in..

go w/ the aquarium air pump. bubble it through some water and put it on a timer for 4-6 times a day for around 15 min. each interval. Use perlite humidification. It works and it's cheap

Go to that site. Look in the tek page. There is an automated set up "The Hawk Tank". I made one with a few mods it works great. I put my casing in, and i don't open again until harvest time. I could post pics of mine if you wish. Hope this helps.
