Putting the bottles in a heated tank works very well, but I wouldn't
use a tank with fish in it for fear of an accidental spill.

To keep my hatching bottles at a constant temperature, I use a
styrofoam fish box I got free from my LFS. In the box I have a rack
built out of 1x2 lumber that holds two 2L bottles, and a 25 watt light
bulb in a porcelain socket. I adjust the temperature by sliding the
lid more closed or less closed.

Hope you have a very nice day, :-)
