i have a female A capra that laid 15 eggs afew days ago, there might be afew more in the tank as she kept digging for quite a wile after i took out the eggs when they were fresh laid and she was still burying them, i have them in seeled tuperware containers in damp coco peat theres a bit of condenshion on the walls of the containers but not the lids, i have read a lot of Jobi's old posts and would like to try his way of incubateing, but i dont realy understand 86day time high and 75 night time low dos anyone how long these last during the day/night? should the eggs be at NTL the whole night them warm up to the DTH fast and stay there all day? i was thinking of keeping them in seeled containers but put them in either vermiculite or perlite, is there a diffence? in Jobi's pics it looks like he was useing perlite? and just use a light bulb hung over the eggs to heat them during the day, dos that sound alright? i have a temp gun for measureing the temps,

sorry for the long post but iam new to incubeing eggs like these, up until now i have only hatched gecko eggs that were glued to the sides of there tanks and left there to incubate, so these seem a lot harder to me,
