Re: Does a fish bubblier cause water droplets to NOT form on a terrainum???

First off I don't think you need a bubbler stone under the perlite, straight hose would be fine.

Are you using perlite on the bottom of your terrarium as well?

I saw a tank with just a quarter jar set up like so going into an otherwise cool tank and getting 90-91% at 69 degrees F. Not quite good. Its easy to have too much or not enough water..

Maybe experimentation with a humidifier is in order, as that is basically what is being simulated.

Hi Condil,
I'm running the air thru a bubbling stone that is fully submerged in a one pint jar that has water and about 5% H2o2 in it. There's also a 2 inch layer of perlite floating on top of the water. Thats how I filter the air.

I don't have an exhaust port, and I'm starting to think that may be a problem? If new air is coming in thru the air pump, the old air must be going out somewhere:-) And the only place it can come out is through the top of the lid. Hmmmmmmmmmm?

Thanks Condil

I think what condil ment by filtering is filtering the air coming into your air pump. I put mine in a small tupperware dish, cutting holes for the power cord and air tube, and then cut a hole in the top and covered that hole w/ a filtering paper ( found hepa-filtration vacuum bags, used a piece of one). this way, the air coming into your aquarium is much more contamination-free

Thanks Condil and MadMax_5
I'm beginning to think that my lid is no longer air tight:-(

As for my air supply, I've designed a box contrsucted of HEPA filters around the pump itself. The pump sits outside of the terrainum.

The cakes haven't fruited yet. It's been a week since I've birthed them and yet no pins. The temp is between 70-75 degress, and the humidity is good. I'll give it another week then I'll have to see what the heck is going on;-)

Thanks again for your help guys:-)
