There must be a better way to heat.
The jars are pretty and plenty big.
The ones at Walmart that I'm talking about come with a lid. Of course, since I will have to put a heater in there the lid will be partially open to let the wire through and will also allow air to come in. Won't be the most aesthetically pleasing thing i guess, but oh well. ;)
Toad posted it if you want a look at it.
Thanks aokashi! That 1 gal jar looks amazing!
The jar seems thin from the picture i guess, but in person I remember it looking quite thick and sturdy. I'll go recheck it though.
DragonFish, I have one of those too. They are really nice looking! Unfortunately I haven't been able to find another 2 gal one here (I bought my current one in a different city).
