Terrarium version 2

Terrarium version 2. It took me a week to complete it. Growing some plants inside a container with no air circulation is more complicated than I thought. The version 1 didn't work out that well...

End of tank dumps occurred when all the CO2 in their liquid form is gone because your tank is empty. What remains is the CO2 in their gas form inside the tank. "Cheaper" regulator would allow these...

I found the Petco one is pretty accurate. Is only $6 (in the store). Get one from your local petco store. Do a humidity test with a half cup of salt and water. Put the cup inside a sandwich bag,...

Hm...no. Besides, not all DSLRs can flash sync up to 1/250s. If a little shrimp needs 1/320s to freeze actions, what do you use to freeze a stingray swimming by??? :)

I think I am overthinking this....I mean, they are just plants. No live stocks. I will keep it close with some saran wrap. I don't think it is going to hurt to have a bit of humility inside.
