fanning and contams
    #899731 - 09/22/02 06:32 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Last time i lost a large portion of my cakes due to contamination during fanning. I made sure that everything inside the terrarium was completely sterilized. So i could use some airstones in a vase to supply the oxygen but the items aren't available to me around here. So i need suggestions, like i was thinking about spraying some lysol or something like that around my terrarium before i fan. Well any suggestions are appreciated, thanx.

always do that before handling your little friends.  It won't hurt them unless you are spraying directly onto them.  Go ahead and do it :smile:

If your cakes are fully colonized when you put them in the terrarium, then fanning shouldn't cause contamination. Are you saying they were contaminated before any flushes or after a couple flushes? Cakes will usually only produce 3-5 flushes and then will die off turning blue and eventually getting contaminated.
