incubation... Is this okay?
    #344783 - 06/20/01 12:58 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Just wondering if anyone out there can see any problems with my incubation setup. Basically I have a tub filled with water and a aquarium heater in there, and my jars all sit in the water with there lids above waterline - obviously :) ... I have done this, as an aquarium heater in a jar of water with my mushie jars sitting next to it does not seem to give off the right temps still...Any suggestions/comments??

A friend of mine tryed something like that a while back and most of his jars contaminated, I think it was because the water got stale and was home for a lot of bacteria.

You might want to try putting the aquarium heater in a jar/container filled with water then cover it with its lid or syran wrap then place this in your incubator. The heat will radiate off of your container and then heat your incubator. I think that glass radiates heat better than plastic but I am sure that both will work. Make sure that you insulate the container to hold in the heat. A blanket would work fine.

Good Luck
