aquarium heater wattage

Prepping for first time out of the gate!

Going to do PF-Tek with the first group, probably try casing next.
We're in no hurry, so just trying to learn step-by-step as best as we can.

Anyway - for the incubator: what's the best wattage for a aquarium heater?
We were considering the heater-in-a-larger-jar method - and the overall container is a transluscent rubbermaid container (11 gallons).
It will be kept in a storage closet with no lights of its own and not in thedirect path of any heating vents.

Thanks! I hope to join the ranks of proud farmers in the very near future!

you can get away with using 50 watt heaters in incubators as they are sealed and can build up heat nice and steady.

if your incubator is going to be opened/closed and messed about with a lot of the time, buy a 100watt one.......they dont cost much more and they switch themselves off when the desired temp is reached so it doesnt waste any more electricity.

Many thanks, Zed.

Glad you're not really dead.
