    congrats on the upcoming eggs and clutch!

    i LOVE your DIY stuff! looks like u really scaled up w/ this build. have u been hiding some extra 0.1 Aspidites that are ready to go?
    anyways the use of the of the condenser looks really cool! how were u able to compensate the humidified/oxygenated air in your previous design? i'm sure this design is a step up somehow but i don't know the mechanics of the pumped air design.

    My previous design relied solely on the water it was pumped through to humidify and normalize temperature of the air. As a result if the water level of the humidifier containers got outside a certain range the temp and humidity of air pumped into the egg boxes could change. Due to this water had to be added to the containers weekly. Another issue was the containers would get gross and need to be cleaned.
    The new design pumps air via a fish tank air pump just like the old one however rather than go directly into the water, it is pumped through the condenser first which normalizes the temperature of the fresh oxygenated air then it goes through the air stones in the water. I also moved away from a container and switched to jugs that I simply replace with new ones as the old ones get empty. The only thing that gets reused is the cap.
    Once the air goes through the condenser then the humidifier it gets pumped into the egg boxes. I control humidity with vent holes on the egg boxes. More vent holes means lower humidity and vise versus.

    Re: Black-headed python progression thread

    Humidity in the incubator is 48% right now, kind of high for here because it is raining outside. Usually it is in the 30's.

    Humidity in the egg boxes is 94%. This is on a dry perlite base.

    Temps are still low because the heat tape has not come in yet.

    Re: Black-headed python progression thread

    Wife just sent me this, looks like she decided to lay while I am on shift. Any pro tips on separating stuck eggs would be much appreciated.

    Re: Black-headed python progression thread

    Total of 7 eggs, 1 was obviously infertile and was discarded 1 boob and 1 looked healthy but was pushed out of the clutch by the mom. I have been told that the females will do this if they sense something is wrong with it but it has been my experience that is not the case is we are incubating it.
