    Anyone have any luck building their own misting assemblies? I have an automatic misting system with plenty of extra 1/4" tubing (and more tanks I want to add to the lineup) but don't really want to pay the price that mistking and others charge for their pre-assembled mistheads. I also enjoy...

    What's the maximum safe hole size in 3/16" glass for ventilation and how many can I have. Where should they be located in the lid? This is for a two piece 20 gallon high. Would a few 3/8" holes work or do I need to go bigger? Thank you!
