Incubator question.....
    #1119903 - 12/07/02 01:13 PM (21 years, 2 months ago)

I just have a quick question. In the FAQ it says to use a glass bottle when making the aquarium heater incubator. Would it be ok just to use a 2-liter bottle?

Can you even fit the heater through the mouth of the two liter, and can if you can fit that, can you fit the whole thing into your cooler and still close the top?

You can put a heater in almost any container. But if its plastic you want to make sure that the heater doesn't touch the sides of your container. Those submersible heaters (most anyway) automatically turn off when they reach the desired temperature...

SO, if that glass cover on the heater touches the side of the plastic container it may turn off, or weaken/melt the container.

You can use plastic milk jugs, big soda bottles...or 1/2 gallon mason jars.

My $.02:
If the plastic can handle 130F tap water, I hope it can handle 85Ffrom the heater.
Try the pitchers at wal-mart.

Ok, until I get a heater I have my myco bags in a computer paper box. If I put a lamp on topo of the box and leave it on for a while, do you think it would dry out my bags badly? I think it may work, but there's no way to regulate temp and i'm sure it has to be a fire hazard. Any feedback is appreciated.
