Tub in Tub ??
    #3657109 - 01/21/05 03:42 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

just set up a tub in tub using 2 18 gallon tubs with about 2 gallons of water in the bottom one, with a 50W fish tanker heater. I've left it on for about 2 hours with the heater on its highest setting. The temp in the upper tub is only reading 75 which is room temp in that room. How long does it usually take to get up to incubating temps (80-85F) and is my heater up to the task?

I am still a newb but i put very warm water in the bottom tub along with the heater. i think it just speeds things up a bit. try that. i also place a blanket over my TiT to keep the heat in.

Yes, it's fastest if you already put water that has your target temperature in there.

if your doing TiT you should be sure to have the adequate 'distance'
from one tub to the other in order to create a heat circulation.

for example you should at least put some drinking glasses as distancers
in between, or even better add a water pump to evenly spread the warm water:




it can take a tit a day or two to initially reach incubation temperature.

also filling with water at incubation temp speeds up things dramatically.
peace ohm :mushroom2:

got hit by the 'anno did the post while i was still typing'-syndrome again lol :wink:
