    I did a search and all that came up was using FlexWatt in the incubator. Basically I was wondering if anyone has used FlexWatt in the brooder? I'm thinking of making my own "EcoGlow" style heater. With raising reptiles,I have a lot of FlexWatt laying around. Knowing tht it can get warm, I would using a dimmer switch to reduce heat outpu.

    I guess if you could hook it to an acurate thermostat it ought to work.
