There have been at least two other threads you've popped on to for some reason or another, unless there is another Jose and I'm getting the two of you mixed up. In that case I apologize. We're both fairly new to this forum, and I don't want to start any bad blood or drama. I just kindly ask if your going to comment, at least give me the benefit of the doubt that I know maybe just a tiny bit of what I'm talking about.

Peace
Murk

I agree with murrkywaters in this scenario jose. You are not providing anything to this thread or asking for information. If you responded to murkkywatwrs comment asking you for specifics to attempt to diagnose why those setups failed you should have just responded “Sorry, I can’t recall the information and only remember that they failed.” On the other hand, murkkywaters, you could have just responded “Okay, let me know if you find anything about why they failed, any information I can use is appreciated” Both of you aren’t perfect in this scenario, but from my perspective jose could use more improvement.

Note: I only lightly skimmed over the posts so please forgive me if there is something I’m missing.

Aaaand we have our first test underway. Sealed box, no light just to see how it does in the best conditions I can hope for as far as cooling goes. 45 mins in and I have results! 23° C ambient, hot side at 18° C and cool side at a whopping 14° C. It should improve as the temperature continues to drop inside the chamber. Considering it started at 23° C I'll take the 9° drop.

Well, equilibrium was hit at 12° C. I'm sure I could keep the temps down by dropping ice packs into the water reservoir. I'll call it a tentative success! Next step is to track down a 1 ft² piece of polycarbonate greenhouse paneling. Anyone have a leftover chunk?
