mistking

  1. Plants
    I had been hoping just to fill my reservoir with tap water and apply the appropriate dosage of Seachem Prime to eliminate the chloramine that's evidently in it. The MistKing instruction manual, however, said never to use anything except RO water or water demineralized through whatever means...

    For instance, I have a very large enclosure that has a lot of surface area and that needs misting on basically all of that surface area, and is also very tall, which may affect misting in ways I don't yet understand. This is a an example picture of it: For reference, the black foam-covered...

    What kind of clips do you like to use for securing mistking tubing to the glass of your vivariums? I know for a fact I've seen a thread discussing this very topic with handy pictures and everything, but I just can't seem to find it. Any ideas?

    I've been in the hobby for over a decade. In that time I've built dozens of tanks, experimented with many different backgrounds, false bottoms, and myriad construction strategies. I've drilled glass, plumbed tanks, and generally done a little bit of everything. That's not to say that I'm an...

    I'm planning on buying a mistking as its really cheap right now but I was wondering if anyone from the uk knows which bottled water from supermarket chains can be used safely.

    I have an "Advanced" Mistking system that uses the 3/8" backbone set up which basically consists of 3/8" tubing coming from the pump and 1/4" tubing that branches off the 3/8" backbone to the mist nozzles. My question is about the zip drip valve itself. Does the return tubing come from the 3/8...

    Well I have been wanting to build a a nice show tank for awhile so figured I would pick a nice 24' cube aquarium. Im planning the build for either some Oophaga pumilio or a some kind of ranitomeya. The tank will be a 360 degree view so no background will be made. I picked out a really nice piece...

    What do people use to hold their Mistking reservoir? I have mine on a few blocks of wood that I had intended to use for another project, but when that project got sidelined, they were all I had to make sure it was above the pump. Since unfinished wood and water don't mix in the long term, I'd...

    Hello guys! This is my first post, I'm actually quite far along in my first viv build. It's a 55 gallon build with custom background (cork, Great Stuff with silicone and background mix, etc). I've taken a bunch of pictures and I'll document the entire build soon. So I've done quite a bit of...

    There seems to be a lot of threads asking about where to place mistking nozzles, but they are all for specific builds. I just thought we'd get one going where it's all in the same place. Post how you do it, and anyone wondering how to set theirs up can see successful examples other people have...

    MistKing Vs. Monsoon Pump Comparison

    A quick photo comparing the Monsoon's undersized & impractical pump, to the smallest (Starter) MistKing pump. The yellow circles highlight the plastic collars that tend to fail on the Monsoon which leads to water being sprayed over the electrical components. MistKing is leagues ahead of the Mo

    Dear colleagues and Marty. I need your collective help. Mistking fittings began to drip. Dripping is not a lot, about 1 drop for the duration of the pump. Drop is formed at the junction of metal and plastic parts (as in the photo). I tried many times to remove and stick a tube. Swaps the...

    Hi guys. Living where I am has its advantages and disadvantages. On of the cons is no cool tech like the MistKing systems, hygroloan, moss mix and many more. I have began to make my own MistKing (sort of) and i have come to a wall of some sort. I got some tubing, nozzles, drip stoppers, even a...

    Hey there, I am making a new Vivarium for my new Tincs that I am getting. I am getting a Exo-Terra 36x 18x 36 (X-Tall/Large) and I was very curious as to what some people did to mount a Mist King system on these Exo-Terras. Does the tubing mount easily through the holes provided in the back...

    So I got a Exo Terra monsoon for Christmas. I know people will back mist king with everything but since this was a gift that was ordered online with an end of the year sale so my mom got it for like 30$ off it would be a pain to return. I only have a small 12x12x18 vivarium with a pair of...

    I got a tank from a friend that I plan on turning into a viv for some thumbnails and and he also gave me a reptifogger. I know everybody here is using misting systems such as the mist king to keep their tanks humid but does anybody use a fogger? Is it bad for the frogs? I think it would look...

    Hey Everyone, Been searching for a RO filter system to use with my mistking but most of the threads I have found are several years old or don't have many suggestions. What are some of you using and would you recommend the filter. I am looking to spend between 100 - 150 if possible and don't...

    So I got a free Monsoon system and am wondering if i should keep it and use this for my darts or should I try and return it to petsmart and get the cash an buy Mistking? What are your guys' thoughts, i know the mistking is a bit wider and more fine where as the monsoon is thinner stream and...

    The Exo Terra 36"H x 24"W x 18"D vivarium I half finished needs one finalized detail. I have to decide what brand of misting nozzles to use and how many. I am very partial to the E.N.T. Terrarientechnik brand of nozzles from Europe. The are minimal in size, very adjustable and provide a fine...
