    they are used as heatsinks to keep the temp more stable

    You ever heard the saying 'a watched pot never boils'? Well, a watched bator never hatches....leave it alone [​IMG]

    Mine usually mostly hatch overnight, probably because I set them in the evenings...but they still hatch when I'm not looking [​IMG]
