Fill the bottle cap with salt and literally 2 drops of water
I finally got around to doing the humidity test and it looks like it passed. I got a reading of 76% after the cap full of salt with a few drops of water say for 8hrs.
So any ideas on how I can reduce humidity in the tank. I've read that 90+ is not good for darts. Is that true?
Cool. I will adjust the misting and see how that goes.
You're right, 90% humidity all the time is not ideal. You want to have ups and downs. Do you have any standing water in the false bottom?
Yeah. There is standing water.
You can also try removing the standing water but I would start with slightly less misting and more fan time. How often are the fans running?
As long as the humidity is above 80% you're fine..it doesn't really matter if it's above 90% most of the time.
By having a couple of vents on the top that you can cover with something.. you can then decrease and increase humidity.
Plant growth update.
Moss is starting to come in nicely and spreading. Best results I've had with moss. Thanks Phil! Green Oasis moss .
Nice! Green Oasis moss definitely rocks.
Any idea what that green slime is, growing on the wood, 2nd pic?
I believe that is algae. Im guessing there isn't much air flow in that specific area.
Yeah. Probably not much. I still think I need to get a more powerful fan system. I went as big as I could fit for the intake fan, and I don't think it's enough.
Just growing in the plants right now. I have six varederos lined up for the fall. They are froglets right now. Once I finally get around to installing the finishing pieces, the trim work, I will post up some pics.
In fact, I will post some pics of how the moss and plants are coming along, when I get home.
Quick response, brother! Wasn't really expecting that. Ha.
Tapatalk. Always on!
Definitely update us with a full tank shot. Really interested to see how it's coming along!
Did all the orchids take?
