I have the aqueon mini bow 2.5, and i bought a marineland 25w adjustable heater, its kinda bulky, but the preset ones that claim to keep the temp stable at 78* really only heated it to like 75*, and it was more expensive than the heater i use currently.
ps, op i had the same barrels in your avitar in my maurice's tank until just two weeks ago. he liked to hide in them and peek his head out the front. too cute.

I have The Marineland Shatterproof preset 10w and it barely keeps the water at 74/75 like the others said. My tank is only a gallon and it doesn't heat it. sad. I bought the Elite in the link a few days ago. It seems like it will heat the little tank just find and move on to the bigger tank to heat it also. I would get the Elite. It just seems like a better brand for heaters.

Mine managed to keep my 5 gallon at 82, and will go to 86 if its being sneaky XD
In my 1.5, it was at 80-82, same for my bf. Its a good heater, preset and hearty.

I thought the marineland stealth pro heater was recalled...?

And, 10w might work, depends on where you live.

I use that same one on my 5 gallon. Many here prefer adjustables but I have had zero issues with mine. To each their own
