The and aqnd under water fish tank heater works great just nake sure to ckeck it, keep that sucker full of water I let mine dry out and the heater kept trying to heat the air not the water, and cooked all my jars that were next to it.

it works fine, but using a heat pad or a underwater heater has one down side, uneven heat....all the heat comes from the bottom. If you have a closet you can use place a heater in it and a thermometer to keep it at the desired temp.....works well and no dealing with water or a heater that can dry out the container holding the water.

Couple of suggestions for you.

1. Go to a tropical fish/pet store and ask for a fish cooler. I have one that is about 10" high, 15" wide and 20" long. I cut the top part of the lid out and replaced it with plexi glass (just for easy viewing, not functionally neccesary). I then put a heating pad underneith and monitor temp. This works prefectly for my petri dishes.

2. Get an infrared heat lamp (red in colour) and put it above (on a stand or whatever) over top of whatever you want to incubate and move the lamp closer or away until your temp stabalizes. I use this method for grain jars and whatever else.

I've had good luck so far with a space heater ($19) on a timer. You don't want to aim it directly at the jars. I aim the heater into the opposite corner. Jars and heater are under a desk that doesn't get used much, which kinda helps to keep the heat in. Get a thermometer and play with your timer to maintain a good temperature.

Greetings & Salutations!
Hey, I'm just wondering here: has anyone placed a submersable aquarium heater into their terriarium, filled it with just enough water to cover the heater, then floated their casing pans in the water like the 'Good Ship Lollypop'? I thought I'd try it! Any input on this folks?

Delyrium, that is the first way I incubated jars. Later, though, I started placing them on the lid of a container heated this way. Click here to see it!
