How to get air into an airhole free tank?

Post by Isaiahtb »

How can you get air in a tank that is airhole free? I don't think proping the lid up a bit will help much. Any advice. (I don't want to let all my humidity out by opening it all the way!!! -.- )

Also I only have the tank. Nothing else.

Prop the lid a bit, or slide it to one side or the other to let air in. If able to do so, a small opening on both sides work better for air circulation as in 'air in and air out' type situation.

Use your imagination pencil, lego, saucer, wood...depending on what your humidity level reads depends on how far it should need to be propped.
