I hated to start a new thread, but I haven't really located one with this exact scenario. After weeks of limping along with older styrofoam incubators, modifying them with fans etc. I decided to invest in a better bator, as I was just not having good hatches. Anyway, I've researched for weeks and short of buying a GQF Sportsman (which for my operation at this point, seemed a little excessive), I've decided on the Brinsea Octagon series. I want the Octagon 40DX for sure. However, after reading as much material as I could find, I've concluded that I want to have a seperate bator to hatch in. It was almost a toss up between the GQF Genesis & the Brinsea Octagon 20 Eco. I am thinking the Octagon 20 Eco model without the turning cradle would work nicely & I'm a little reticent to use the styro's anymore. Since I've never used any of their (Brinsea) models, I thought I would ask the community for feedback on the Eco 20 model as a hatcher only. I know the fans tend to get alot of fluff in them etc. But how are they for humidity (my biggest problem) and how are they for overall ease of operation? Thanks for any and all contributions!
