aquarium heater
    #3955019 - 03/22/05 07:28 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

well, my incubator will be jars and spawn bags sitting in some water with a fully submersible water heater in it. the problem is, i can't fit the water heater anywhere w/o it touching the spawn bags. what i did was wrap the heater in couple roomy layers of alluminum foil so that the glass of the heater won't touch the spawn bags (straw and spawn in oven bags) or the plastic of the incubator tub. i'm thinking this is a good idea and the incubator will fill its purpose and not melt anything...anybody done it this way or think it would/wouldn't work?

you need to raise the bags and jars out of the water.

either use something like a rack to keep them up.

or build a Tub in Tub.

this would solve your heater problem too.

take care!~

hey rk, why do i need to raise them out of the water? it seems like the same results could be achieved if submerged or if not submerged.

your idea would work fine, but so would letting the spawnbags touch the heater. It shouldn't be set for more than 84 degrees F. What exactly is the problem with them touching it? The only reason i say to raise them is so that they are all evenly incubated.

they are in oven bags so i don't want them melting and exposing the contents of the bags to water damage **EDIT**(oh wait...why the hell would oven bags melt, they go in the oven for christ sake, lol)**EDIT**. there might be a way for me to raise them so i'm going to pursue that angle before i do anything experimental. thanks both of you.
