Default Conversion Tank Ventilation

I have two frog cube 20 high conversion tanks and with misting system they get really too wet. I'm trying to keep them on the same misting schedule as other vivariums. Has anyone used fans with these how did you attach them? The only vents are in the front and with misting tubes can't put anything too bulky on top vents.

Default Re: Conversion Tank Ventilation

I haven't tried putting vertical conversions on my main Mistking setup, but I can certainly see how it would be a problem. Has anyone ever tried putting a ball valve of some sort (or equivalent) in-line with any tanks they don't want as much water going into? Maybe it can't work because of the pressure involved. I know there are some of my tanks that I have to dump the overflow way more often than others and it would all be better if I could dial things back a little...

A ball valve will not work in this application. The nozzles work by length of time under pressure. The nozzle head would either never reach enough pressure to generate mist or would generate the same mist after a fraction of a second delay. If you want reduced misting you need to either reduce number of nozzles or completely switch some nozzles off during some time points. That could be accomplished with a solenoid.

I only have one nozzle in each and they are in the middle of one branch of lines. Wonder if Mistking makes nozzles with reduced flow rate.

Could you put double-heads in the other tanks and singles in the 20's?

Im at limit of nozzles for my Mistking. Here is a somewhat older pic of my set up. I added some plants to background and others plants have grown in.
