Using Water!
    #3917799 - 03/14/05 10:13 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Well so... I live in a cold apartment, usually 62-68 degrees. I purchased a fish tank heater that can be submerged in water and a little case for it. Could I just heat water to 80 degrees and inaculate my cakes in there?Thanks for anyhelp!

Yes, if you get two tubs and put one inside the other one, with a good amount of water in the bottom (+ aquarium heater), that's called a tub in tub incubator.

To find a place to live between the negatives and positives.

Most fish tank water heaters do not heat above 80degrees for safety reasons, and most tropical fish don't need that high of temps. I realize some heaters with adjustable temps. might claim to get that high on the box but 90 percent of the time wont. I am using a 5-20 gallon heater, on high, in about four-five gallons of water, and am still unable to get above 76 degrees.
Good luck with the mushrooms.

I have some submerible aquarium heaters that go to 93 degrees F. on the dial.

And they seem to get the water temps up to the high 80's.
