Styrofoam coolers, in my opinion, are better than glass aquariums. Heres a few reasons why: They weigh less, therefore its much eaiser to relocate; It isn't transparent, its easier to seal, cheap, and is easily replaceable. Since I switched to a styrofoam cooler, my humidity has been optimized, and my sucsess has improved. Its just what I prefer personally, I know others here use glass, and thats what they prefer. Its up to you, just weigh the pros and cons and figure out what suits you best :wink:

Lizard King, what do you use for a spray shield when using a styrofoam, or do you use a spray shield at all?

I don't use a spray sheild. It isn't really necessacary with casings, only cakes. I stop misting when I see pins and let the perlite do the work. I found that continuing to mist after pinning occurs, causes overlay in the casing. At least it does with me and my casing tek.

I've found the same, after switching to my glass aquarium, it seems my flushes were much more productive in a styrofoam cooler, in mine I used a piece of plexiglass for a drip sheild, and it also *seemed* to keep the humidity up in that lower portion of the cooler. If you really want to perfect things, turn the inside black w/ paper/paint/whatever so that the mushrooms know what direction to grow (to the light coming through a plexiglass windown on top), and you'll get nice, tall mushrooms

Personally, I agree with the other responces here. In my experiance styrofoam coolers were much more convinient in every aspect. You should do fine with them. Good luck,
