Well Christopher, you could always hang the smallest aquarium heater you 
can find inside the inverted coke bottle, perhaps supporting it with 
something near by, or you could put a 60 to 100 watt light bulb in a 
clamp-on utility reflector (sold at K-Marts and Sears) and have it aimed at 
the coke bottle from a foot or so. Keep an eye on the temperature less you 
cook the brine shrimp! If the light bothers the brine shrimp paint the bulb 
black or dark red with "Hot-Engine" or Bar-B-Q grill paint, your only 
interested in the invisable infra-red light anyway.
