Dear Chad and All,
Thanks for the feedback on increasing humidity.
>I think an air stone is a good idea. Almost tried it, but my air pumps were
too loud and I couldn't find a hose that was a good length! Maybe some


If you go to any aquarium store then they should be able to supply (fairly
cheaply) the airline for your airstone.If the pump is making a noise (some of
my old pumps sound like a WWII bomber warming up!!!!) then its possible that
the airstone needs changing (these should be changed roughly every 4 months
as they become blocked and can contribute to pump noise).
If the pump is still noisey then ask at the aquarium store for a replacement
valve kit (or ask the store if they can do it for you) which,again should
help to alleviate a lot of the noise.

All the best,
John Wilden
