easiest way to cool/warm stacked terrariums/incubators
    #3014391 - 08/17/04 05:34 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

got a closet all cleaned out.. its not very big, so im planning on stacking incubators on top of one another, now to heat these up since heat rises, would it be useful to use 1 fishtank heater, crank that baby to 88 and just put 1 big blanket over both tubs stacked ontop of eachother, would that heat the top one too?

another question... if i cranked the fishtank heater up AFTER i have incubated, and i dont need to use the incubator anymore, and now i need fruiting temps, if i cranked it to about 86 and put a large bubbler in it, would that keep the closet (4'x3') nice and warm to fruit about 3 chambers at once? ...

now for summertime, how could i cool down 2 incubators stacked, and 3 seperate fruiting chambers in a closet with no air conditioner?.... i was thinking about buying ice paks, the gel ones, but were would i put them? just in a tub in the closet? ... man this is confusing LOL

can any moderators tell me why my response box is like two inches wide ...

for a tub in tub i suggest heating up some water in a hotpot then pouring it down the sides, make sure its not too hot and no jars on the side you pour the water down will overcook, afterwards i can snake my hand down and swish the water around a lil cause i don't have a water pump down there or air pump.. or which is it supposed to be, anyone?

I would be concerned with the incubators heating the fruiting chambers too much.

Remember heat rises. Make sure air can flow though the closet, with vents top and bottom. Also put the fruiting chambers under the incubators, and if you are using a PMP like design keep the air pumps low too.

Ice packs work well, I just use empty plastic drinks bottles filled with water and frozen, placed in the fruiting chamber. Have a few extra so you can just swap them out when they melt.

Good luck with your study :wink:

Oh, and just had a thought regarding you double tub-in-tub, I use a fish tank water pump to mix up the water and keep temp even. You could use this pump to pump water from the lower incubator to the higher one and put a overflow return to the lower tank.
