I posted this yesterday but apparently it didn't go to the list. Here it
I recently put together a 20 gal aquarium configured as a
paludarium in my living room. It holds plants and a single betta
male fish. Due to the temperature difference between the room and
the interior of the paludarium, the glass tends to fog very easily.
I'm sure other people run across this problem already, so I would
appreciate any advice on what to do to prevent or minimize this. I
tought of two possible solutions, but would like to hear from others
1 - wipe the glass internally with defogger liquid, the one used to
prevent fogging on car windshields. Drawback: may be toxic to fish
or plants ?
2 - blow air with a small fan over the internal glass surface. Drawback:
too high tech, maybe too noisy.
The obvious solution, which is to raise the room temperature to above
the temperature inside the paludarium, is out of question, since this
would require to keep the heater on over my entire house at 80F from
October to April ($$$$).
