I used the same stuff, but I wasn't using the perlite the same way you are. I had my terrarium humidified with an ultra sonic and the perlite was there just to help retain humidity and whick up and water that accumulated on the bottom because I'm lazy and didn't want to clean it, and I figured it would just add to the humidity. It worked fine for me. I think you'll be fine. Good luck.

add water slowly and keep mixing the perlite up as you go along to encourage even moisture distribution.. and to make sure it doesn't get too wet.

good call on adding the H2O2 also

Damn! 96 jars! I thought I did a lot


You don't need the coke bottles unless you see a lot of water build up everywhere. Here is my old setup:


I just propped up the tube so that if I had any water build up it would just pour out the end.




I just liked this pic

It was actually a tank for my friends old iguana. Man did I wash it out good then rub it down with 99% isopropyl alchohol. Iguanas are dirty .
For ur first question ur talking about building a terrarium. You could build one out of wood like that but it would be a lot of work and the wood would probably buckle and warp and rot and what not. I'd just buy a big rubbermade (sp?) container.

My ultrasonic didn't give off too thick of a mist. It worked fine and I didn't have exsessive water build up. (I know if some of the pics it looks like I did, but I left it on for hours to test a bunch of different factors.)

I had perlite and wire mesh on the bottom. The mesh won't rust, and if it does get some new mesh. It's like a dollar. I think mine is the only tank I've seen set up with both the perlite and the humidifier. I used the ultra sonic as my main source of humidity, and the perlite was there to help retain humidity and to whick up any water that accumulated at the bottom of the tank.

I didn't fan. I think I fanned once or twice but then just said fuck it. I didn't need to. I had an air pump running 24/7, and when I turned on my ultra sonic I would put it on low and low mist volume and let it run for a couple of minutes. It provided excellent air exchange.
