My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

out of ovates! thanks so much for helping out LG!!!

Someone's been doing their ducky homework. WTG!

x2  good job CH

Good morning everyone!! Question about the Brinsea.....the paperwork it came with makes a HUGE deal about how calibrated it is and says why would we take a $10 thermo/hygro and believe it over the $700 machine? Should I bother adding additional ones?

Question about my lone Salmon Favorelle. He/she is about 4 weeks old. It won't stay still, so photos aren't great....

I'm leaning toward boy.....what do you think?

The design sucks, and I've wasted tons of manhours on it already.

hippie you will get there! surely its not that beat up?

My question is, I've got a secondary thermometer/hygrometer with a probe IN the incubator and the temp keeps saying 101.8 or 102. I thought I'd calibrated the new separate thermometer/hygrometer but now I'm not sure.
Anyone specifically have experience with this bator?
I don't want it too hot but also not sure that the meter with probe is currently accurate...:-/

never go with the one that comes in the bator, thats why most of us have two extras that we can calibrate to make sure how much the one that is built in the bator is off or not.  If your sure of calibrations I would go with the secondary, if you need to recalibrate I would do that another thermo may be in order.
