How cheap is cheap? What size of an area must you cover? How much are you gonna pay me to figure this out? (only joking, I wanted to see if you would read the entire post, lol)

Walmart http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=5811314

or http://www.rainbird.com/ and search their drip systems for misting/foggers.

Cheap as in the amount you save from making your own in comparison to buying one is significantly greater. As far as surface area, i am mainly talking about a generalized design that can be slightly modified here and there for small or larger tanks.

My initial idea was to use a pump connected to a misting head and a timer but i wasn't sure if that would work.

Sorry, i really should have said all this before, i think it was late in the night and i wasnt thinking properly.

Oh and herefishy, $5???

perhaps an old power head, a short piece of home garden irrigation pipe and one small garden mist sprayer..... should do it... :P

thats kinda what i was thinking but wasnt sure if it would work and currently lack the funds to buy those parts for an experiment so was hoping maybe someone had already done something.
