    If I put in 50 water bottles, could I get the temps below freezing? ;-)

    Ng,

    I get what you're saying. I'm gonna put one more bottle in the terrarium tonight to see how cold it gets. The whole bottle of ice setup is gonna be temporary though, since I'm planning to experiment with peltiers as soon as I find a suitable one.

    Tc,

    The fans that I have found are all 12VDC computer fans. I have one from a 4 year old Aptiva PC which doesn't make nearly as much sound though. The blower type fan seems to do the trick, but I really have to find a way to stop the resonance in the tank.

    I am gonna go for the peltier effect too as soon as he fridge goes, then I can rip it apart and see what I can do! I see though why you want to get the peltier as you could have it on a timer and your plants would get cooled even though you weren't there! I like the idea of that! Why as a matter of fact a few weeks ago I had to increase my ice quantity for the Rajah terrarium as the temp would only go to 65-60F!!! Not good, so i increased to a cold apck and now it battles the summer heat fine throughout the night.
