Wattage on heating cable

Hey all,

As the topic meantioned I was wondering what wattage most people use for their ants? I don't think anything over 25W but then again I have no idea just assuming. I'd like to buy the correct one but before purchasing I wanted to make sure. Also I think it would be lucrative for AntsCanada to start making and selling them considering they give the option to attach one!

Thanks all,

I have a camponotus nicobarensis in a test tube and it's currently only 70f.

I use a 15 watt, as I've seen many other people do the same and it works out for them, and it surely works out for my queen.
Such small creatures they are... yet so organised!
