Gigantic styrofoam box - Score!
    #3553525 - 12/28/04 06:37 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Check out this huge styrofoam box my girlfriend scored for me! It was in the parking lot of her apartment building... she had to move it to park her car. After she moved it and it sat outside for two days without anybody claiming it, she took it, cleaned it up and gave it to me!!! I don't know the actual dimensions, but there is a 1 qt mason jar for reference. The foam is about 2 inches thick on all sides.

Don't they store unclaimed "John Does" in those boxes?

Kidding, I had to pay for my styrofoam box! You punk!
Cover it in wood panneling, and throw an ugly grate on top... tell the cops it is an old heater...

Any suggestions on how to heat?
Would heat mats or a fish tank heater in a jar be better?
Would hanging a small comp. fan on the top be a good idea?
And would lining the inside with foil be any help?

sorry for the barrage of questions, Afoaf has similar case.

Personally, I would use a thermal heat pad as the main heat regulation. Possibly adding a stronger source of heat for the times when you pop-open the lid for checking on them. (Thermal heat pads for pets not people, they are more efficient and slightly slower to heat. But must be affixed to glass or metal for heat transfer.)

I have since removed my interior circulating fan, mini cpu fan, in my incubator. It seems to be contributing to my contamination issue. (Forcing air through my filter sealed vents, and depositing debris in the nooks under my lids, where the contamination creeps inside the jars. Something to keep an eye on!) Remember, hepa-filters are useless once something rests against it, or if something grows on it. It usually grows through the filter, adding contamination to the other side.

For incubation you can

-Use a heatbomb and rotate them ever 3-4 days
-Cut a hole in the top and put a fishtank heater in
-Heating pad as a last resort

Through my Exp. TiT's are the best....but maybe you'll find luck elsewhere...gl

Fishtank heater in a closed jug of water has always been my method. I've been keeping fish since well before I got started here so I usually have a spare available.
