will design a circuit, do you think you would be able to assemble it on vero board, basically just soldering part in a pattern?

what temp controller are you using at the moment Viper?
I'm using the tunze 7027/2. The only thing I don't like about it is the controller runs off an AA battery, so if that goes flat then your temp is going to drop, happened to me once, my temp dropped from 26 down to 19 overnight because of a flat battery.

OK, that is just P**s poor for a brand like Tunze. :(
