    Why are you so fearful of using a fan? Yes it may be a little expensive but well worth the investment. If your planning on growing orchids and tilladsia in there as well Id say that the fan is required. Using an air pump would be a waste of electricity when compared with most fans.

    The reason your drilling the glass is because while silicon may hold the fan initially, for long term stability you need a more solid connection. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Khai,

    Would a humidifer, small, with a belt in fan work for a 30 gallon. I am building a larger space for orchids and highlands, but this will be for my drosera. I have a smaller one started for my traps. I thought about putting small humidifiers on a self above the plant base. I will place fans to control the complete setup of two terrariums and an enclosed shelf. Right now I have two 48" banks of lights, for four bulbs, above.

    The cost will be low. I used to raise lots of fish and have most of the eq. I need to get the temp/humid control.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    JLAP your not using logic in your thinking there.
    Tell me how do you think green houses operate? magical fans that run on good feelings?
    Shading systems that are operated by gnomes or fairys?
    No all these things are powered with electricity.
    Perhaps if we were all idiots and never coated any wire/ cable/ cord we might have a problem. As long as you mount the fan according to the directions I gave you and
    unless youre activly spraying water into the fan you shouldnt worry.
    Peace

    Yeah as long as you can regulate the humidity and safely mount the fan that is so it doesnt fall and jack a plant.
    Ive had this happen too many times. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
