To TiT or not to TiT???
    #8789353 - 08/18/08 03:53 AM (9 years, 6 months ago)

this slow colonization is killin me.

thermometer in drawer right now reads 70, but in the middle of the night it hits about 50F

my girl works at ace and they were throwin out some tubs, so i had her bring me home two. woohoo for free shit!

theyre the same size.

can i make a TiT incubator with same sized tubs?

is the water pump a good thing to have in there, i have a few layin around?

what temp do i set the heater for?



ive never done anything but let anything colonize on a shelf, but ive never lived somewhere thats this chilly...so its time to make an incubator, and i need some guidance :smile:

mold likes warmer temperatures also but if your sure your 100% sterile then why not

throw a fish tank heater in the bottom tub set for like 78-79, the jars will likely be 80-83 with growth in them

Check out this link- Ohmatics Heatbomb

You should be fine, just enough heat to take the chill off. 

TiT works too- but if your at 50-70 already, you don't need the massive heat of the tit.  You just need 10-15 more degrees.

You can definitely use the same size tubs for this.  When I built my TIT I put half pint canning jars in the bottom to put some space to between the two tubs.  Use a fish tank heater like Abit was saying.  I like to put a thermometer into the tub with the jars so I know exactly what temp it is in there.  Throw some weight onto the top to keep the tub weighted down or attach the two with zip ties which is what I do.  Drill 2 or 3 holes on each side of the lip of the tub on each tub then zip tie together. 


Hope that helps.

im not gonna do the zip tie thing. seems like too much effort, and not as pretty as just throwin a weight from a weight set in there.

You can use the same size tubs, in fact I found that if they WEREN'T the same size, it didnt work.

ok well i have the tubs, but ohmatics heat bomb now has my attention:lol:

i would be able to just leave everything in the drawer they are in that way. my house is like 20 sq ft so space is precious...

i wonder how many heatbomb horror stories there are.

if doesnt seem like it would heat evenly tho :frown:
