Terrarium as incubator for casings?
    #2769771 - 06/06/04 07:53 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

My styrofoam cooler (jar with water and fish tank heater) is not large enough to fit my casings for the prepinning stage. Could I just put the jar with the heater in my terrarium to raise the temp during this stage (without turning my humidifier on)? Would rubbermaid insulate heat well enough? thanks

Sure. Shouldn't be a problem

I find Fish-tank heaters work well, they are designed to be submerged so humidity wont be a problem.

I've noticed a number of people using them with dual 'rubbermaid set-up's. They work fine and are simple enough to maintain.

The dual-tub set up is EXCELLENT. It gives an even distribution of heat to the whole tub.

I have found that if not made correctly, the fluctuation in air temperature outside the incubator can have an effect on the temp's inside the incubator. 2 or 3 degrees won't but higher fluctuations will! To prevent this, use a tub-in-tub type incubator. Make sure the inner tub is submerged and water on all 4 sides and use a small water fountain pump to circulate the water. This will work best!
