just use your plastic container lid, and fan the top with it. It just basically moves the air around and circulates any co2 that is in there. Mushrooms need Oxygen.

Better yet, you can buy a fish tank pump and use htat when you're not fanning

by using an aquarium pump wouldn't you be introducing a lot of unwanted bacteria into the terrarium?

my friend he took his fishtank air pump and unscrewed the rubber part on the bottom and put a sheet of tyvek on then screwed the rubb back on you could do that it works well you might want to maek the air hole a little larger though sinse it slows down the air flow a decent amount

A fully colonized pf cake is highly resistant to contaminates. It will not contaminate if you fan or have an air pump or humidifer going. At least not until you've gotten several flushes out of it. After several flushes the mycelium will get weak and eventually may start to contaminate. Usually by that time the cake is spent anyways.
