    I'm currently building an incubator and am going to install a fan to circulate the air. My question is, does the fan need to run all the time or does it cycle on and off along with the heat?

    on both my spring times in a box I leave the fans on all the time and the thermostat just turns on the heat lamps/or bulbs
