Incubation Chamber
    #1352223 - 03/05/03 11:14 AM (18 years, 2 months ago)

My pet hippopotamus has read that you can simply use a cheap styrofoam cooler for an incubation chamber. My pet hippopotamus has been saving up and he is going shopping this weekend and he would like some ideas as to what all he should obtain to make a complete incubation chamber to maintain a temperature of around 85F. He realizes that he should most likely get :

1) a submersive aquarium heater of around 100w
2) an air pump to help circulate the water
3) some sort of cooler - little to no light is needed when the cakes are colonizing, or is my pet hippopotamus wrong?

Is my hippopotamus missing any vital materials? Also, he knows that you don't put the jars directly into the heated water, right? How would you go about keeping them out of the water but obtaining the neccessary heat? My pet hippopotamus thanks you.

Hi!
1) Yes.
2) No.
3) Yes.
You could just put the submersible heater in a glass vase or a big enough jar inside of the cooler for heat. There is no need for a pump at this stage if you use a styrofoam cooler. Get the biggest (within reason) cooler you can. Good luck!

Thanks for the help. Could my pet hippopotamus use two rubbermaid containers and fill the larger one with water and place the smaller one floating on top? I saw that somewhere on the message board and it looked like a pretty good technique.

This setup uses two bin sizes so there isn't any rocking about due to floating.
