My "Newbie" Set-Up....Advice Please
    #3322425 - 11/05/04 01:17 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hello, finally started. Here is My set-up.



The bin, closed...



Inside, with a "HeatBomb" and my casings...



And a closer view of my set-up.

Does anyone have any advice I should know about?  Does everything look alright?  Just wanna make sure.  Thank you.

:crazy:

Think the outlook is good? I mean, does it seem too cheap? I spent most of my money on the fruiting chamber, and forgot all about Incubating. How long should they take? Between 2-4 weeks? Also, optimum temp IS around 84, correct?

Oh, also, if the temp is lower than optimum, does it just slow down colonization, or does it effect it otherweise, also?

yes it will slow it down. optimum is 86, but if you have a steady 84, it will work out good.

83-86 for optimum, Buckeyes. I keep mine at solid 84F

i hav sum jars doing very nicely right now, and they are actually cold to the touch. so temp. really just determines speed of colonization. that setup looks bomb. but why are the lids to the jars so colorful, hehehe?

hey!

ur setup looks aight for me, and it makes me happy seing that ppl are
actually using my heatbomb tek :smile:

funny thing is, the size of the tub u incubate it is huge, i guess u plan
upon using this tub as a fruiting chamber later on right?

besides that, keep it up :smile:

*edit*
i think i see that the top part of ur heatbomb bottle isnt completely
filled with water.
it looks as if the heater wasn't 100% submerged by water,
which could lead to overheating and damage of the heater.

be sure to have covered the heater entirely in water,
if there is indeed like an inch or so of air inside ur bomb,
consider ripping the silicone seal and refilling - would be cheaper than
trashing the heater aight?
peace ohm :mushroom2:

Ohmatic, Im sorry to say that, when i took the silicone off, refilled bottle with water, and put the heater back in, it blew.....that really, really sucks.  Now I need to find a new way to heat til i get to the city.  Oh well. :sad:

you have to let the heater cool before placing it back into cold water, come one now hot and cold dont mix when it comes to glass. But my sympathy man that sucks, also any electrical appliance generates heat. if you use your tv alot or anything like that just set the tub on it or beside it it will heat it up alittle until you get another heater also it wont hurt em to be a little coller for awhile it just slow down the colonization time. good luck

ey mate thats just what i wanted to write!

dude, im sorry ur heater broke but im pretty sure that if u had let it cool
and insterted again carefully u would have been allright.
it coudl have also been caused by, well, by whatever reasons :wink:

i fell really sorry for u thoug and hope that as soon as u purchased andother
heater ull be back in growing business.

actually, go to the shop u purchased it at, and thell them it suddenly
stopped to work in ur aquarium and u dont know why.
they should replace it free of any cost.

maybe the area of air, like i mentioned above, where the heater wasnt submerged
caused it to overheat and selfdestruct, this however is just a guess.

lotsa success in the future, and dont forget, ur jars will still colonise
even if there is no incubation, there just wont be that speed :smile:

peace ohm :mushroom2:

Thanks ohmatic.  Just so you know, i wasnt pissed off or anything, not at you anyways.  Plus, i did let it cool off, im not that dumb :tongue:.  It might have just been its time to go (of course it goes when i REALLY need it, lol), it wasnt exactly brand new.  But anyways, untill I get a new one, ive got the chamber in a small room with an electric heater, wich amazingly keeps a steady temp of 84! 

P.S.-Cool temp slows colonization, what does over 86 do?  Ruin it?

P.S.S. How long befor first signs of colonization?  :mushroom2:
