    Next time I incubate I would like to get a new hydrometer. What is the type I should get? What about the brand? :)

    I bought the Acurite from Wally World like stated above and it's pretty darn good for the price. So far, it has been very accurate checked against a Brinsea Spot check. Mine has been at 99 and 45% humidity for a few days now.
