Here ya go
musesick's total rehash/standing on the shoulder of giants incubator tek:
1. Buy two rubbermaids. Cujo uses 2 18 gallons.
2. Buy a 150 watt (preferabbly) submersible fishtank heater.
3. Attach the suction cups that come with the heater to the bottom of one of the rubbermaids, and fill about 1/3 (give or take with water)
4. Set yr heater to the optimum temp for what you are incubating, taking into account that the jar's interior is usually a few degrees hotter than the ambient incubator temp.
5. Place yr second rubber maid on top. Put jars in it. Place top on.
6. Cujo places some blankets on top for added stealth and to help keep warmth in...not sure if it has effects or not...
here's a pic w/o the blankets:
(click for larger pic)

some others have diff. set ups.
search!
there's a wealth of knowledge on these boards.

i think the tub in tub, is un-necessary unless you are going to be incubating like 500 jars like starter or joshua... if you are only going to be doing a few (12 or so) a 50 watt heater in jug of water inside a cooler will work just fine for ya...

I like to use one of these pumps next to the heater so that the jars don't just heat up from the bottom of the incubator. I'm not to fond of using a heater in a jar cause the jars closest to the heat source are a different temp then the ones furtherst from it.



Tub in tub is by far the best way to go.

Really want to get into it use one of these heaters. You can control and check the temp from outside the unit.
