They recommend a salinity of 1.018.

Interestingly enough, the can I've had forever from Angels Plus recommends a salinity of 1.022. I wouldn't think that would be enough to affect hatch rate, but...

Who'd you get the eggs from? I was having issues with hatch rate so in desperation, I got out a hydrometer and checked. I wasn't adding enough salt.

Sometimes, it's not the air pump you hear; it's the check valve vibrating against the wall... Or...something else being vibrated. Like say, a couple of glass mason jars used to hatch bbs.

I have a vintage 10 that has the sides resting on the bottom. I'm not prying the frame off it as it has top, bottom, *and* sides. No; not metal either. It's...odd. I only know it's assembled like...

Based on the time period and the strip light (sold as part of a full hood, the hood broke a long time ago), I'd guess Perfecto as the light is. Could be wrong. Since it's a 20L, you think it could...

At this point, it looks like it's a very regional thing - none of the stores in my area have stud grade 4x4s. They do appear to have cedar 4x4 fence posts though. Hmmm. Naturally, they don't carry...
