Incubation idea foiled by "safety" haha
    #3970644 - 03/26/05 12:07 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Well, I was a bit apprehensive about trying the tub in tub with a submersible heater, so I bought a heating pad. Turns out it has a safety feature that turns it off after 60 minutes of use. The temp has been lows in the mid 40s-low 50s and the highs anywhere from 65-75 I think. Any other incubation ideas? I suppose maybe they would colonize at these temps, but I don't want it to take forever. Thanks!

Oh yeah, I saw something at pet supplies plus for iguanas. You stick it to the bottom of the aqaurium and it keeps it at a suitable temperature for them, which happens to be close to ideal incubation temp, but it says it can only be used on glass aqauriums. Anyone have any ideas that are NOT a fire hazard? :smile: :cool:

I guess I'll just do the TiT incubation. Hopefully Wal Mart will let me return the heating pad.

try this out tape down the button and see if the heating pad will heat up. some models wont heat with the button taped down. if it does stay on just go buy a cheap timer and set it for something like 2 hours on 1 hour off. play around with it and youll find the ideal temp. thats what i used to do when i started.

I can get an aquarium heater for 5 or 10 dollars more, so I think I might just go with that. It would probably be easier to control that as well.

just a reminder, make sure it is fully submerible.

Yeah, I saw quite a few at the pet store today that are. I saw where someone made a hole on the side to let the knob stick out and sealed it with silicone. I think I'm giong to try that. Think it might be wise to buy a picture frame and use the glass to stick the suction cups to and put that in the botttom of the rubbermaid tub?

I just worry because some days I'm gone to work and school for 12 hours a day and no one else is here. I don't want to come back to my house burnt to the ground.

never thought of the pic frame or heard of it but sounds like a good idea. one tip with silicone make sure to pay alot of attention to the area you are sealing or you will have leaks and make a wide base to help against the pressure of water.

Suggest you find a heating pad - without the automatic shut off.
