Air pump/humidifier
    #7416825 - 09/16/07 04:45 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have four 66 Qt. terrariums and I want to hook up a air pump/humidifier system.  I was thinking of getting this...

now that only works for up to a 55 gal tank.  Since my terrariums all together add up to be 66 gal., would the humidity be too low, or if I hook up a little higher air pump like a 100 gal. air pump, would that work?  Here's the air pump that i was thinking about...
http://www.amazon.com/Whisper-100-Aquarium-Air-Pump/dp/B000A0PYQK/ref=sr_1_1/105-2767616-1669232?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1189974870&sr=8-1

If nothing else, I will just by two of the humidifiers and two smaller air pumps and hook each up to two of my terrariums.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

I have never even seen the second thing you posted but I can tell you from experience that the 1st thing does not work very will at all,plus it has a sponge in it,I cant recall if the sponge is treated in any way but if not it will only serve to be a contamination vector

Blutjager, could you give a little bit more background about what you did and why it didn't work well? Was there not enough humidity? Did it contaminate? Etc.

I'm running one on a 50 qt tub and it seems to be keeping it at 99% RH no problem. I'll probably put it on a timer so it doesn't oversaturate. As far as contamination goes, I hope that since this contributing a constant stream of FAE, that'll help mitigate the problem. RR seems to be a strong advocate of the opinion that most contams occur as a result of inadequate FAE.

Fortunately I never really had it ruin anything but the fact that the sponge inside of it had black growth in certain spots didn't seem like something I wanted around my mushrooms
