heating question for you guys!
    #1626182 - 06/11/03 01:14 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Alright i know this subject has been beat to death and i did already search but im trying it with an added idea dont know if it will work. Im having trouble keeping my incubator anywhere above 80. It keeps dropping to the mid 70's and i dont want that. Last time i colonized at this temp it took damn near forever. Im thinking of using the dreaded heating pad method. I know i have a risk of drying it out (Which i have done already). My setup is a big rubbermaid tub. I would put the pad under the tub and heat it that way. Since its going to be all dry heat would it help to keep a wet rag or cup of water or mist it to keep moisture in? Or would that do nothing?

Hey what a guy you are axtv. You figured out yur own problem.

That is what my friend uses for his incubator. He has 2 coolers set up with fish tank heaters in water jars. Works good at keeping a steady temperature.

I hope that is what you were reffering to as 'a more heat retaining container'.
