I did have one issue with that heater, one day it did just stopped working. Luckily I did have that thermometer and I saw that the temp was down and no steam on the top. I went to get it replaced. I have the recipe and the package to replace this one if it ever does it again. My other fish has a flat heater that hides under the gravel, though it seems to not get warm enough in the tank. I mean it is in the 70-74 range but I would like it to be in the near 78-80 like you said. I might get a different one and keep that heater for an emergency. good pointers the both of you. =)

Awesome, well not awesome the heater broke but good you've got a thermometer. But yeah pretty much any heater under 10 watt's kind of pointless because they don't really heat well as you see. But it's better than nothing

Hahaha that's ok. I understood. =) and at least I was able to get another one. oh one question though about those heaters. if you know this, can I submerge them all the way? I have is to the water level but now I am thinking that is for when you do a water change and do now go lower than that line. LOL I have been looking into it and it doesn't tell me an answer. Unless it is right under my nose.

They are fully submersible. I had an issue with that same heater, though. It worked fine for a day or two, then it just didn't keep the temp the way I wanted. It might help to simply let it sit in the tank for thirty minutes or so when you first get it so it adjusts to the tank's temp, and then plug it in. Since mine stopped working, I exchanged it for Penn-Plax Cascade Heat 25w (adjustable, about $16). (My fave local pet store swears by it, compared to Hydor.) I'm testing it out in a bucket of water, and it's working fine from what I can tell. Going to test it out for a few more days before I put it in my betta's tank. (It has an on and off light, and unlike Aqueon, you can leave it plugged in all the time.)
