Stay away from cheap brands. I have two, Ranko and Johnson Controls. I know some people that use thermostats for plant hydromats with success. Hydrofarm is the brand I know some have used. I have not personally used those, but they seem to be ok.

The one I really want, and will get one of these days is a Herpstat by Spyder Robotics. Here's their website

Could I ask what is classed as "well started"? Are we just talking about something that has eaten a few meals and shed a few times or something that's been held back even longer?

That's not to say you can't have success purchasing a hatchling, but the odds are better when the corn is well started, and growing well too.

I agree. Getting a well started baby is a good idea for new keepers. Even getting one that has eaten 5-6 meals consecutively sets the new keeper up for more of a chance for success.
Sometimes, babies that aren't established might go off food due to the stress of the move to a new home. If the baby is well established in eating, they usually don't go off feed when being moved to a new home.
