Advice for tub-in-a-tub incubation
    #3381653 - 11/18/04 10:41 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Anyone using the standard tub-in-a-tub incubation with water and a aquarium heater should pay close attention to temperatures. Not only the ambient temperature inside of the tub, but also the temperature directly on the bottom of it. I really recommend using a digital thermometer (I purchased a Thermarite for $8.99) that has an external sensor. Place the the unit on the inside wall of the tub, and place the external sensor on the bottom of the tub. If its too hot, simply cover the bottom of the tub with a towel. Its very easy for your incubator to be at ~85F ambient, and still have the bottom side at over 90F, a very bad thing.

Good luck!
