    Exclamation Air Circulation in grow area

    I've got a 4 foot long aquarium I'm setting up to grow plants and in the past have really struggled with finding a good air circulation solution. What are people using to slowly circulate air in their grow areas?

    Buy a 12v wall adapter at the thrift store for almost nothing (get the highest amperage possible). Wire that up to an old computer fan or two. Voila.

    Nice. I was just going to ask how that's done. I think that's what I'll shoot for, though I will probably buy some nice variable speed fans. Anyone have pictures of their nice computer fan setups?

    If you want to make a more powerful setup, go on eBay and buy a power adapter for a Wii. They're usually around $10, and they put out about 3 amps (3 times more than the best you're likely to find at a thrift store). I used one of those to put together an array of six fans, though I only have three plugged in these days.
