Air pump
    #537876 - 02/01/02 04:28 PM (16 years, 9 months ago)

OK I got an air pump to circulate air and bring new filtered air into the terrarium. I have to questions on this however:

1) Do I need to stick it in a glass of water, even if the thing has a good filter on it?
- I did it but it made the glass of water really cold and made my casings cold, plus it was noisy with the bubbles.

2) Can I keep it on all the time?

3) Do I need to make holes in the terrarium so air can escape? (The terrarium isint completely air tight, and im sure air escapes between the lid and the box).

Thanks for info.

are you going to case or leaving them as cakes? i guess ill learn from whatever anyone suggests back to you. ive got a big pickle jar in my terranium with a 100 watt fish tank heater and fish tank air pump with a bubbler, its noisy, but its providing plenty of humidity, some moisture on the sides of the terranium, im testing it out right now, ive got one cake in there.

You need to humidify the air or it will dry out your terrarium in no time. Thats the reason for the bubbler.

You don?t need extra holes.

Thats odd cuz I have my pump going 24/7 and there is still plenty of humidity. I actualy dont want so much humidity with my casings. 99% is too much. I think ill get another pump for the chamber.



When it comes
I'll know, I know
Just take my clothes and leave
And I'll be gone
