Hmm...

Well The heater I had, had a fan in the back and heater in the front - which helped cool down the system itself. Plus it had an automated "shut off" when it got too hot, or when the room reached the right temperature...whichever came first! It does say to keep it away from edges like walls, dressers etc, so if you kept it so the front faced OUTWARD and sat it in the center of the shelf it may work?

Well, I'm not sure but if you filled a tub say...6 inches, and placed jars in there, you want to make sure the jars don't tip or float off

Whatever amount of water it takes so the containers don't float, glass can have more while plastic can't have as much, remember the more surface area that is covered with the heated water, the better heat transfer you will get.

The tub of water will be the best cost wise and keeping them heated.

With still water heat won't disperse very well so you may also wanna look at a small powerhead or a small internal filter, just to move water around.

Agreed =D I was just thinking that haha! A small quiet pump and air tube should do fine if you can secure it in the water (rocks, weights, bubbler, silicone, etc)

Sena Log could just use a powerhead, that is for pico tanks as they aren't expensive on Amazon, they can look like a fan or some look more like a filter with a nozzle, cheaper ones tend to use a nozzle. Just search pico powerhead and you should find one that suits you well.

A bubbler could maybe work, it would be more trial and error though... Not sure what Pog's budget is so a powerhead could be a bit too expensive...
