hey scorpion people.
all of my iverts will soon be going into a different room... more space for more racks etc.
is there a way to heat the room (will measure later)
or is there a better way to heat multiple tanks with a single heat source?
thanks

a heater is a good idea. maybe one of those electric radiator style ones so you could set multiple tanks around it?

Heats as many as can fit in there. It cost me 100 bucks to make it I think including thermostats. It looks daft, but it works like a charm

4 x50 w lightbulbs in the back. I can get it over 35 degrees celcius easily.

They are on two thermostats. Lower half gets heated to 24 upper one to 28-30 according to how I feel that day to cook them or not.

It basically is a big hatching battery or how do you call it in english

2 thermostats .... They measure the temperature, ambiently.
If a temp goes over a set treshhold they cut the power to the lamps automatically.
If the temp after turning off drops below a certain set treshhold, they fire back on.

Continually...

1 length of heat cable from a garden center or an oil filled rad in the room. I use the oil filled, never had an issue.
