incubator question....
    #3927494 - 03/16/05 09:38 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

okay so I cant have a tit cause its too large to fit in the small space im growing so I put my 6 jars in a 10 gallon aquarium with a heat bomb.. heat bomb didnt even get it up to 73 degrees.. so I tried putting a small space heater in there it worked but when I came back to check on it the temp was like 94. so now it seems my only choice is a heating pad .now should I put some thing under the heating pad? (cause its carpet) and should I use one or two?

there should be a buffer inbetween pad and incubator box...
try taking the "heat bomb" out and onyl using the spage heater...that might be a better choice.
that or turn down one or the other...
hope it helps.

Sounds like one of those space heater/radiators that has a controllable knob and thermostat might be the solution.

Rubbermaid makes lil 3gal tubs that could be used for a small TiT. The measurements would come out to around 16"x11"x10" I've heard. I am guessing that will fit 10 jars perfectly.

Have you considered a BiB (Bucket in bucket)? Same concept as a TiT, but, I would think, if you have room for a 10 gallon aquarium, you have room for a 5 gallon bucket. There is a tek, or a thread, I think its a thread, somewhere.

the 3 gal rubbermaids would be smaller than the 5 gallon buckets.

I highly recommend using a Tub in Tub type set up.

the 3 gal set up might even fit under a bed.

good luck!~
