The regular aqueons are crap, I agree. The pros are so different. I don't get why they can't make a decent regular line heater, even if it's not as well made.

My Aqueon Pro Heater failed before one year and they have a life time warranty. I don't feel like trusting them with my fish's lives. Ehiem Jagers are the best you can probably buy and on Amazon they are like $25-30, instead of like $60 at Petsmart/co. You can see it in the picture. The problem is is that it failed when it got cold. I am lucky I had the Ehiem already, or my fish would have froze.

Glad the heater is working nicely!

There's nothing bad about putting a 50 watt in a 5 gallon, is there? I had a 50 watt in my 5 gallon for about 9 months and it was fine, it just stopped working right after that 9 months because it wasn't very good quality...It didn't hurt my fish though...I thought a 50 watt was a good size for a 5 gallon...

My 50watt is rated for 7-14 gallon tanks but it would be fine in a five gallon as long as its adjustable. I've seen some people successfully use the 25 watt rated for 2-7 gallon tanks in a one gallon.

Edit: plus it is convenient if you plan to upgrade to a larger tank later on.
