    I was using the little giant still air and then put a computer fan in to make it a forced air. I finally bought myself the brinsea octagon Eco and have my first batch in there! :) so far it's holding temp and humidity like a champ.

    I've been using a Little Giant, and seem to have the hardest time keeping temp steady lately, so hubby bought me a Brinsea Mini Advance. I'm so excited, I should get it this week.

    I also had a hard time keeping the styrofoam little giant at a steady temp. I'm so incredibly happy with my brinsea. I probably could've done the mini, since I don't do large batches but I got the octagon 20 Eco for 130.00 which included shipping. So I thought that was a good deal.

    Thanks for letting me know I made a great purchase. And ooooohhh, you gave me a great idea. I got a sturdy table right beside my bed. Hubby on the right side, incubating eggs on the left -what more could a woman want!

    I really want a brinsea. I have a homemade one and it works well enough for now.
