Iguana rock-heater for incubator heat source.
    #3321048 - 11/04/04 07:50 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Well, it was 5$ at the local pet store, so I got it.

The surface heats up to 90 degrees and so I am thinking if I place my inoculated jars nearby inside of my chamber (like ohm's heatbomb) it should work pretty well for the heat source.



Those lights are 15 watts each, would one be enough for 4 cakes? Or should I use both. Thanks for the help!

it will provide heat, that's for sure. as for whether or not it will provide appropriate heat, that remains to be determined. you'd be better off with a heat bomb:

you should be fine with just one light.

good luck.

those rock heaters are know to be very unreliable. I'm surprised they even still make them because they have been known to severely burn reptiles

Well thats ok because I'm not using it for a reptile.

I'll give it a shot. It might work, it might not. I will be monitering the temps.

Use a timer just to be safe.
