So, it's been a looong time since i posted here, i'm back with a project.... A Highland Nepenthes Terrarium!
So, i want to use a Mini Fridge, i have selected one of 52 litre Capacity....
So, What tinkering should i do to convert it into a terrrium cooling unit or a water cooling unit from which the water would be circulated in a tank?
I haven't purchased the mini fridhe yet, so any other cheap or similar suggestions would be welcome lol!
A glass aquariums will have a glass lid with two 22 watt 6500 Kelvin 2400 lumen Cool White LED Tubes on top of it,
It will also have a small cool mist humidifier and a fan blowing air insode it from the outside or circulating air inside it or blowing air and humidity from the humidifer to provide humidity with cooling (please suggest any one),
The mini fridge will have a large water container inside with water, the water will be chilled, i can also use a anti freeze coolant, when temps exceed a limit then a thermostat will turn on a pump which will punp the coolant or water in the bottom of the tank, the same thing will happen once again in the night, so how can i pump the coolant or water out of the tank and into the fridge for chilling it again ? (i need the system to be automatic as i can't hire anyone to operate it during my holidays)
Also, can i tear apart the mini fridge and attach it's coooing system directly to my tank?
The tank's specifications--
So, which thermostat and humidistat should i get to cool the tank down if temps go above a set limit and cool it down during the night?
Also, what system should i make to automatically pump the coolant/water from the tank back to the fridge after the cooling is done?
Sorry for all the humongous questions!
I'm a highland Tank Newbie lol.
Photos of the mini fridge i've selected have been attached, if needed then i can cut all the useless plactic pieces in there.
Thanke In advance For your generous replies!
