Hi Karen, thanks for the reply.  I guess then that you are getting what
you consider long term stability in your tanks without cables?  Has
anyone played with external heat tape or wire (as seen at
http://www.beanfarm.com/heating.htm#Heating Supplies or
http://www.bushherp.com/heating.html), which are easily controlled with
a cheap rheostsat?  It seems that these could be set up with similar

Moving up, laterite.  Now that we are Dupla-less, what is the acceptable
substitute for 100% laterite?  "First Layer?"

Thanks, Kevin
