    Will the mister be just a recirculating pump. or will you have an actual evaporative cooler? Please let it be the latter!

    Glad I could help. I would never have thought about misting and lightning in a mod. :jawdrop: This is a cool concept.

    The only problem I can see is how to keep the rain/mist in the acrylic cage. Any vent on the away side of the fans is going to lose moisture. In our vivariums and terrariums they are almost sealed airtight.

    ...is not a problem cuz as you can see in this rough design the water will be falling down move by the air in the front and then collect by the reservoir... that's plan... :thumb:

    but we'll see when I start building this thing next week what will happen :wallbash:

    There's three things I'm concerned about here...

    1. you'll have to refill water on a daily basis

    2. your water will get very dirty, from the dust the two fans are drawing in

    3. your fans will quit service after a bit because of the humidity

    It's a very nice idea, but I suggest that you find a way to install the fans inside the sealed "stormcage", without them drawing air from outside the whole thing. In addition the fans should be water-proove.

    Otherwise it's a great idea :cooldude:
