Humidity and Air Exchange
    #766364 - 07/22/02 04:32 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I've been looking to sort out the humidity and air exchange problems in my setup for a while. I have recently got an aquarium pump, and a heater (which is actually a brewers thermostatic heater).

What is the best thing I can do to provide humidity and air exchange in my setup with the materials mentioned above, plus maybe some airstones, (are they needed, I don't know).

I have these, but don't know how they could be used to do the job, so any help and any ideas are appreciated.

Your pump and airstones will work fine for the humidity, though for just a little more moolah you could go ultrasonic and never have to worry about enough humidity even when you have 10 chambers. Either way you choose you'll have to put it on a multi-event timer unless your pump/airstones put out just enough that you can leave it on all the time. As far as air exchange goes though, you're going to have add some more items to your parts list. It can be done a number of ways, or you could just fan it with the lid twice a day until payday.

So I can do the humidity with just the pump and airstones, cool. I think I'll use the heater to build a decent incubator.

If this will keep my humidity high well then I don't mind fanning a couple of times a day I suppose.

Do you have your air pump on a timer? If so how long and how many times a day do you run it.
