    What are you incubating. That really determins the temps you need. You can make really nice incubators out of ice chest. I will see if I can find a link for you on how to make one.

    Hi arcwolves400,
    Ku musta?

    I dont think you need an incubator if you are in the Phils. Your normal temps will be just fine and most likely you will rather need a cooler than an incubator.

    I constructed a wellworking incubator by using a heating mat, a thermostat(Habistat for me), a digitial thermometer and a Styrofoam box.

    Simple, cheap and working. Took me about an hour to build and has worked flawlessly since then.

    arcwolves400: I´m fine, thanks. I know some tagalog after having worked in the Philippines(Puerto Galera, barangay San Isidro) for some months. It was a while ago though, so I´ve forgotten most of it.

    I´ll try to put up some pictures of the incubator tonight(early Philippine morning).

    I havnt been able to find that link I was thinking of yet. But here is a picture of my incubator. This is before I put in the 12v fan. Maybe this will help you out a little.

    Pictures. Sorry for the delay

    First shot: Outside of the incubator. Visible gadgets is the thermostat control and a thermometer.

    Second: Detailed shot of the heater, thermostat sensor and thermometer sensor.


    Third: Overview of the incubator inside, complete with plastic boxes:


    Hope this helps.

    By the way. Why do you want to import geckos to the Philippines? If I had the amount of geckos you have in my country I couldn´t wish for more

    I can't wait to get back to the Philippines. Just can't get enough of your lumpia, pancit and caldereta, not to mention the Tanduay(Superior of course).
