    We used the MissPrissy idea for making a hatcher - everything turned out great! One problem is that the temp is ranging from 97-101. What can I do to make it more steady? We're using the water heater thermostat like she used (same range of temp that she had)...we're using a larger wattage lightbulb though.

    Any ideas why the temp range would be so great?
