Found an awsome little heater

At my local petco I found a little heater.Iit is circular and smaller than a cd and is good for a 2 -5 gallon tank. it says its for bettas and there is no need to adjust the temp. It is called slim heater for bettas and bowls. you can even put it under gravel. I just have it hanging of the edge of my tank at the top and it already brought my water up to 80* and it was only $10. For the price and the size it is working better than the 50w tetra brand no adjust heater i bought at walmart that didnt even work. The nice thing about this heater is that you can have it plugged in and have it out of the tank safely, what I did was plug it in and have it against my inner wrist to see how much it would heat up and I was impressed. I did that to make sure it was working the is the third heater I am trying and I am paranoid after waking up at 6 and found Freds tank and 70!

Ok the heater is called slim heater that is the only name i could see on the heater it says hydor, and this is at petco there are 2 sizes both for 9.99 one is a 7.5 watt for up to a 5 gallon and the other is up to a 15 gallon. they are flat and black one is a circle the other an oval. that is all i can really say about them other than they are pretty sweet and heat good for the price, i was planning on a $30 for my 10 gal but now i can save some money.

I have one like that made my Zoomed. I have used it for awhile now, and it works great so far.
