      The latter in particular might be useful in the tropical belt to help cool the water.
      Not enough exposure to outside air is not a concern to the manufacturer. Dissolved oxygen measurements at shower filter water outlet will show that media is getting enough oxygen.

      The manufacturer does realize that venting is a concern for some people. Customers can remove top lid for more venting or custom order with circular vents.

      I wonder is just a few small holes -- strategically drilled into the plastic sides at locations the correspond with the airspaces between layers of media -- would sufficiently address this concern?

      Also you lay a piece of fiberglass window screen fabric across the bottom of water distribution tray. Very easy to reach in, take it out, hose it off, and slide it back in.

      I mentioned two retail sources above. Inland Koi and Champion Koi in California are two more sources. Most any retail source for RIO Ceramic media can sell them.
