incubation Question!!
    #599970 - 04/05/02 07:01 PM (21 years, 10 months ago)

I have a few questions about my incubation chamber useing the PF-Tek and 1/2 pint ball jars. The dimentions are10"x10"x12", . It is a 3 chamber shelf with a cells going top 2 bottom. I plan to use the top cell for the main incubation. Putting a heating pad on the bottom of the top shelf, w/ the jars sitting on it. On the second shelf, there would sit a glass with an air bubbler; next to that would sit a large container of water with a submersible aquirium heat in it. A temp and humidity gague would sit on the middle shelf as well.

Would these methods specifiy as per Tek?

If not, can I have some sugestions.

Leave out the heating pad, and the water with the bubbler,
and the humidity gauge. Use the aquarium heater to get it to
84 deg. Cap the top of the water off with foil. And you're done.
Hope that helps.

Well, i would make my self damn sure the heatingpad doesnt exeed 96*F (thermal death of mycileum happens at 110*F) and i dont think you need a bubbler for the incubator cause the Rh doesnt matter that much , it has to be atleast 30% ,so you don't need a bubbler.

The submersible Aquarium heater sitting in a container with water sounds verry good to me, so go for that.

The bubbler, the hygrometer/thermometer, and the heating pad are for your terrarium (might not need the heating pad at all)

Just cover the top of the fish heater jar...

When the walls quit melting, I'll think of a sig

don't go over 86 degrees.......and thermo death is at 106 degrees.

optimal temps are 83 to 86 degrees.

You don't need a bubbler in a incubator.

Heating pads are just too damn dangerous.....I don't care what anyone says!!!!
Hope nobody burn's down their fricken house.
