I know that oysters will not work well in monotubs, because they are very CO2 intolerant. It would be good to make a straw log, or fill a garbage bag with straw and spawn, for oysters. I saw pictures of people hanging straw logs from the ceiling, but I believe that most people just lay the logs sideways, so the water doesn't all go to the bottom.

You are guessing right. It is definitely a good idea to have a greenhouse for edibles. You can use a shotgun for many species, including oysters but you will still need to fan to get enough FAE. If you cut enough holes in a greenhouse you won't need to worry about fanning. My best results have come from fruiting outdoors, oysters just don't seem to produce as well indoors. A buddy of mine had an outdoor greenhouse that he fruited in which required minimal supervision and produced beautiful flushes.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear
These blue oysters were grown in my basement at 75% rh , 60f. So they do great indoors if properly done.

Adaptation never creates a new species or trait, but rather the new species/trait always existed within the parent DNA until circumstances allowed it to be activated. For instance, every wolf has the DNA for poodles, but that DNA would never be revealed without man selectively breeding for it.
