Our Russian Tort just laid an egg tonight and I am not prepared. I have no incubator, just a tank with heat lamps and currently am in no position to purchase an incubator. I have two heat lamps: a heat-glo infared 150W spot lamp and a sun-glo 150W lamp. Normally we use one for day and the red at night as the house is kept at about 76 degrees. The lamps are in dome fixtures that sit on top of the enclosure, which is covered with a metal gate top. Can the heat lamps keep the egg warm enough until I can get an incubator? Should I use one, both? I'd previously separated her from the male (after they mated) so she and the egg are currently housed in 1/3 of a large glass aquarium (18x36x20ish) with covered sides. I have not touched the egg. I know I'm not supposed to turn the egg but to mark the top if/when we move it to an incubator or more appropriate place. What can I do to increase the chances of this egg hatching, until I can get the incubator, which I can't do until the end of the month. Although I have done some reading about this, and despite the fact that I actually saw them mating, I think I was in denial it would actually happen and now am panicking. Any advice for an interim solution would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
