    Default Substrateless breeding containers


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi guys,

    Im thinking about giving substrateless incubation a try.
    On the homepage of the SIM containers they say you should attach a damp sponge to lid in case you use a top heating incubator. On the G.E.O homepage they dont give that advice as well as on the site of THG.

    So, what are your experiences using those containers with a top heating incubator ? Can you use those containers with no problems ?

    Thanks,

    Sebastian

    The hobovator requires the sponge to maintain humidity. You may want to contact the GEO person and ask about that. If you have a mini-fridge incubator you won't need anything extra.

    Helpful hint: You will need to put a lot of water in the substrate below the SIM. You'll know you have enough water when there's condensation on the sides of the SIM at the level of the eggs.
