Fishtank Heaters...
    #1770376 - 08/01/03 06:41 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

How long does it take for these things to get the water really warm. I bought one today and made a simple cubensis incubator, just wondering if a 50watt one will be good enough to get it to 86 degrees.

That depends on how much water you plan to heat. A 50 watter should be good for a fish tank up to 15 gallons. Thats alot of water! Usually an incubator doesn't require that much water. Just be sure you bought a submersible, that makes it alot easier!

It takes about 12hrs. The water will not really feel hot to the touch. I have mine set at 81 degrees and it the the temp in the incubator at 83.

The light only comes on when it is heating. It goes out when it is up to temp.

The little pump mixes the water so it heats up evenly not just from the bottom up.
