Need heat sources please
    #508874 - 01/03/02 11:52 AM (22 years, 1 month ago)

I have a coleman cooler with an ultrasonic humidifier setup and things were fine till winter hit. My chamber stays at a constant 70-72 degrees and I would like to heat it up more. Can someone recommend what I should use including brand names and suggested sources?

I hit the pet shop but don't know if I should be adding a submersible fishtank heater since I don't have anything to submerse it in. Also, they have a pet heating pad but it doesn't have a temp control and it says it works in conjunction with the animal's body heat so might not be useful either.

If you have room I would get a space heater from Wal-mart. That's what I use for my incubation....I tried messing with water and allthat with the fish tank heater but it was messy for me. Hawk sugested I do that. It works amazing. It even has some safty features (falling over or over heating) it just shuts off. Very comforting during the times when you are not home to watch it.
I just use a 40 -50 gal rubber maid, put the heater right in it a play with the temp control to get the desired temp.
Good luck
Holmes insta furnace - measures aprox.7"x7"x8"
with thermostat from walmart, kmart, canadian tire etc. Simple

I just read your post again.....I realize now, you are looking for something for your terarrium. your could use a space heater around the outside of it with blankets insulating the terarium. I do that if it gets cold up here in the igloos. :P
Or just try insulating it with the blankets first before you by anything. It may raise the temp. just enough
sorry bout the last crappy reply.

go to home depot and get cheap shop light/lamp. Shine it on your terranium and you have a cheap heat souce. If you want to block the light use a cardboardbox.
