84 to 86 degrees is where you wanna be at.
Get a submersible aquarium heater.
Get a 50 watt one at a Fish or Pet supply.
Buy a Thermo-Hygrometer to check your temps and humidity.
Radio shack has em.
BTW.....my dog has 20 jars of EQ's almost ready to birth.

When they are fully colonized you can case them You won't have to worry about keeping them as warm at that point.

You can put the submersible aquarium heater into a Fruit juice jar that has a small mouth....then tape around it....that way you can change the setting til you get what temp you want.
Or you can do what i do......i fill my incubator with 4 to 5" of water......and put the submersible heater into the water.
And i put my Jars into another semi large container so they aren't sitting in the water.

You can see the jars inside the container....They were about 40% colonized.....then.
Now they are around 90%.

yo i'm doing casing and i have a 16" x 16" terrarium inside of the glovebox i have the heater just in the air of the glovebox just outside the terrarium, its like 4" from anything so it can't melt anything. the heater has a temp gauge (set to 86) and ii put a digital temp hygro meter inside the glovebox, its reading 75F temp 67% humidity and don't think its raising. it says wait 12 hours so i'll check it till then but its raising what yall thiink? i think its not gonna work how should i do this?!?!?
