    That would work fine as long as the cup doesn't get tipped over to spill water on to your plants. Plastic bottles with screw on caps might be safer if there is a chance of it being tipped over and the water getting on to your plants. Just don't fill it completely full before freezeing it.

    Has anyone tried putting the entire tank in a tub of ice water to cool the tank at night? I grow my plants in the basement which so far has provided the cooling I need.

    I'm currious what people who don't grow in thier basement do for cooling. I guess you could put a window air conditioner in the room with your tank and duct the cool air into the tanks.

    Anyone have any experience with what works for them?

    I use a cheap A/C unit from walmart, no more ice cubes or bottles of ice, much easier.

    Just a caution on using AC. It will dry the air out that it cools so you will need to re-humidify the air as it enters your terrarium. Cold, dry air is great for preserving Andean mummies, but not so great for most CPs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
