Calibrate it first with a seperate digital thermometer as the door temp will typically read 35-36.c wheres as the actual internal temp will be about 30.c, this is something to do with them placing the sensor in a silly place!
Humidity is straight forward you gotta just keep an eye on your incubating medium and keep it moist accordingly. There are no water chambers inside the incubator, but you can put a dish in there, the incubators dont dry out too quickly and hold the humidity very well. The incubator will hold about 10 livefood tubs to give you an idea on internal size and it cools as well as heats, I use them and would recommend them.

Sorry Jake missed this! I have found the humidity in the tubs holds for 5-7 days anyway but you can put a tray of water in the bottom also to help. Mine is bizzarly accurate on temperature too, as I know they are often out.

Hope that helps?

One other thing, to get a few tubs in you need to measure to make sure you have optimum usage of space, ie right sized tubs.

I use one of these, I think they're great, look a lot better than homemade jobbys too!

I cheated and didn't pay (yet). I am paying in baby snakes later in the year at my local shop. £100 is what I owe for it though

Well I paid £45 really cos me and Jake agreed to go halves lol

Yeah mine is currently in my living room lol, only free plug I could find as I've taken up all the ones safely in the reptile room.

I got mine from West Coast Reptiles (Member on here), West Coast Reptiles |
It cost me £98.
