    I built a bator and I'm test-running it now.

    I'm getting a constant 99 to 102 from my accurite that is sitting in the far corner (away from the light)

    My Steridyne in the water wiggly is giving a constant 90.

    Should there be that much variation between the two?

    I do have a fan circulating air.

    How long has it been running? Give it a day to stabilize. It may take a while for the water thing to come up to the temperature of everything else.
