    37.4C = 99F

    I hope that helps

    to convert from C to F, try these calculations manually.
    37 + 40 = 77, and 77 * 9/5 = 138.6. For the final calculation, remove the 40. 138.6 - 40 = 98.6

    I have a Brinsea octagon 40. The temp should be 37.4-37.6.

    The exact number should be 37.5 C or 99.5 F, up or down 0.1 C would be fine.

    The scientific equation is (C*1.8)+32 = F

    37.5*1.8 = 67.5
    67.5+32 = 99.5 F

    The spots are probably just the shell texture on different spots. I just toss on day 14 if no growth or if something literally smells bad.
