    Default BS hatchery recommendations

    I've gotten rid of my homemade stuff, but I'd like to have a hatchery available. Can anyone recommend a decent commercial unit, or do I need to make my own again? Thinking I might get to feed some ram fry before too long.

    Francis is correct that one is a bit pricy but it's one of the better ones. I got a batch running now. I can accommodate a heater and that a plus for me in my cold basement.
    I decapsulate and fill the hatchery.

    I know this thread is 6+ months old, but I'm curious as to what kind of heater you can fit into this hatchery?

    Have a search on YouTube for “Keeping fish simple” channel. He is an Aussie guy who makes really good hatchery’s from coke bottles with a full tutorial on how to make them.

    I also own this Ziss unit and use this heater in 25 watt. Basement is about mid 60s. It says preset at 78, but it is keeping the hatchery 82 with an inkbird unit controlling it. Probably because it's so small volume.
