A horizontal layer containing a miscible mixture of two fluids can produce dissipative solitons when heated from below. The physics of the system is described, and dissipative solitons are computed using numerical continuation for three distinct sets of experimentally realizable parameter values. The stability of the solutions is investigated using direct numerical integration in time and related to the stability properties of the competing periodic state.
