Fire Hazard

Alright for my terrerium the fishtank heater wouldn't heat it to the 70's so i propped my terrerium up on a Durable(Melting proof) shelf with a a sort of space heater under it, it does the job but ive been told it could start a fire. its about 1-1.5 feet away from the tank.

Did you take the little knob off the top of the heater so that you can turn the little plastic knob up further? I think you have a "governor" type of thing still on your heater.....

Forget about space heaters.  Just go back to the store and get a better fishtank heater :smile:

fish tank heaters are good, but with a water tank heater element ($10US) you can heat a much larger incubator and not have to use any type of insulation on your incubator. i will post plans in a few days.
