temp problem in incubator
    #3592258 - 01/07/05 04:31 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Ok my temp is to low in the incubator its reading like 77-78 and im having alot of trouble getting it higher . What do you guys set the fish tank heater at the teks says 80 but how is this enough to heat the incubator and water ect to 86? Should i crank the temp on the heater to like 90? any tips on raising temp?

Mine is set to its max which is 89 I believe. depending on my room temp my incubator fluxes from 82-86 degrees. Insulation is ur best friend. By putting a thin bath towel in the bottom and along the sides(same towel) and setting a comforter on top thats folded x4, my heat raised from 74-78 degrees to 82-86. Its just all bout trapping air long enough to allow the heat transfer flow to supply energy to keep it at the level you want =) ~D

you need to build yourself an incubator first. A heater without an incubator is useless. I say this because you said you just had the jars in your room. And i think they only sell the non-sumersible kind at wal-mart im not sure though because i refuse to shop there. Look online at a fish supply place you can get them really cheap
