I believe a fan to circulate the air is always best.

Remember that the temp needs to be set warmer without one.

i mounted mine it the top blowing down through the eggs, it is mounted with screws, but you need a spacer between the bator & the fan, you can use most anything to do this, the bigger the spacer the more air it will blow, mine is about one half of an inch long, pm me if you need help, good luck.
