I think that the idea about jars in a larger container of water is your best bet. Could you put up a card table or some other foldable table in a corner or along a wall to put a big container on with all the small jars?

As for the container, it doesn't have to be a tank, as MollyJean said, rubbermaid containers work great (about 10-15 dollars at walmart), or you could do a big rubber muck bucket (for horses, you can often find them at grocery stores advertised for laundry (I have horses, they're muck buckets... ;). It will be cheaper for you long-term to have one good larger heater that heats the "bath" water than separate heaters for all the jars.

Here are some links for containers: (big ones, so you can do lots of jars :)
This is great, nice and shallow for your short jars, but wide enough to put in lots

Here's a tub, this is just a site I found one at, they have them much cheaper at walmart and super kroger, but this shows you what it looks like:

I hope this helps, and please post pictures/let us know how it works for you, I'm curious now. :)

I asked about this a while back and someone reccomended using a space heater, basically it is a heater that can be plugged in and set to a certain temperature, maybe this would be ok for you?They're were quite expensive when I looked, not sure about prices now though...

You mean like room heaters? They range usually from 30.00 to over a hundred.

I got lucky, 10 bucks for a new heater at the flea market. (for my fish room) It's got a digital readout and oscillates and everything. With it being summer, you can pick up heaters a LOT cheaper then normal.

I actually came up with an idea! I was gunna put them on the shelf like planned, and use one of those reptile tank heaters to heat the area, and put a curtain over it to keep heat from escaping. Also, a quiet, dark place is a good place for a fish to heal! ^_^ i will start saving as soon as my ook is apid off, probs 2 weeks, but I will place the jars up there now as motivation, lol :P
