    I am just starting out have a 5-gallon fish tank for a incubator. Is it too small.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. What are you going to use as an insulation? Just using glass won't hold in heat very well. I would use some of those foam panels cut to fit the sides and one for the top but then is would be rather small on the inside. I made one from a foam cooler. You can see it on my page. Good luck.

    Welcome to BYC, glad you decided to join us. Good luck with your birds. Sorry, I am clueless when it comes to incubating.
