    Ah, basement. Wish I had one of those. Yeah, I understand they keep things cool but I meant I have never seen a heatsink/fan setup like that before. Usually the fans sit directly over the heatsinks. Shame you need that though, I was under the impression leds burned cooler. Perhaps its the amount you are using.

    Well, looks good. Definitely gives ideas. Think I am going to make a few slots on the top walls of the chamber on the back so I can mimic the slots my ten gallon gives that is so convenient.
    I was curious in peltiers for a while myself but I ultimately decided not to use them. I like the fact my blower completely changes the air in the tank in about 5 seconds because cephalotus hates stale air. Let me know how that goes, I would be curious.

    Oh, haha, nice. I was hoping it was working so it could give me hope for a shelf rig... but, nope, I think it's best for me to not try that on a HL rig.

    Looks very interesting, and I'm interested in eventually building terrariums with fans. Specifically, is that "cold plate" fan meant to actually function as a cooling mechanism for the terrarium?

    I'm gonna provide you with a warning that while those fogging systems are awesome for terrariums, the one I used in the past on my captive geckos ended up having a ton of mold growth in the tube that connects to the terrarium. If you can, you're going to want to find a way to clean and sterilize that tube somewhat regularly.

    I haven't had that issue on low-mineral water.
