Aqua incubator question
    #6514387 - 01/30/07 11:21 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

hi, ive decided to buy a 100watt aquarium heater. I have it in a foot and a half long plastic box suctioned to the bottom. My inner box is much smaller and floats freely on top. I know people put a blanket or towel over top of the boxes, but would it be alright to put the lid on my inner box just to keep the jars protected? and then id put the towel over that too.

There really wouldn't be a need for the lid... IME the towel over the "inner box" allows enough protection and some much needed FAE to the jars, lid with a towel on top may just smother the whole TiT setup you've got going. Just go with the towel! Give it a good fan once a day or so...

There really is no need to fan jars while they are incubation.When I used to use a tit,I sometimes just put the lid on and than covered that with a blanket so it wasn't obvious what it was,the object of the towel usually is to help hole the heat it and I'm sure they lid from that container will do just fine,

The inner box of your incubation chamber should not be much smaller than the box containing the water...the point of the incubation chamber is to provide a constant temperature at which your jars can thrive...if the inner box is much smaller than the outer than the humidity can get way high in the incubation chamber and even cause jars to stall because they do not like this...i would reccomend having two bins of equal sizes,pressing the inner bin in the other until the water level has reached almost the top of the bin.This will provide a constant temp without the humidity and from there just cover it with a towl or the lid or anything to keep light out and you will see great results! to see a good pic of what im talkin about

Nice... Firehazard sucks, follow that tek (I wish I had) :thumbup: . My TiT has a fresh air exchanger pump tube inside and under the towel, maybe the daily fan isn't really nessecary, I do it anyway... DeadHead is dead on though, tubs = in size is the only way to do it. Test it out, do what works best.
