well poly box and heat mat and stat thats what im going to use and its been on for a few days now

okay this is what u can do

put heatmat conected to stat and set the temps in polybox.

then buy a tupperware container and fill it up half way with vermiculite what i did was way how much vermiculite there was then adding water to it of the same wait so 100 g of vermiculite to 100 g of water and its damp but not to wet it clumps but doesnt drip. then i put 5 1mm holes in the lid 2 each side of lid and one in the middle i also put the thermostat sensor on heat mat it may take awile to ajust temps to get right temp best to run it for a few days im ruing mine for a week.

there mabey water drops on the lid like there is on mine so im going to put few sqares of kitchen roll on mine and humidity should be 80-100.

thanks for the reply, i have had the incubator set up for a while now and its currently in use with some leo eggs. im using vermiculite as the medium but find after just a few days the eggs start to go mouldy even tho its not to damp and if my corns are succesful in breeding and i get some egg i really dont whant this to happen with them, so whats the best way to prevent mould. a different medium i.e perlite???

I like to put a thin layer of spaghnum moss on top of the eggs then if you do get any drips they land on the moss and not on the eggs.
