I'm in the market for a couple new heaters. Right now I have a tiny 7.5 watt Top Fin heater that isn't adjustable. I don't trust it because sometimes it spikes the temperature in my tank, so I have to unplug it when I'm not home, overnight, etc. The problem, of course, is that when it gets cold at night, my tank's temperature goes down WAY lower than it should.
I want an adjustable heater. One I can trust and leave on all the time. One that will regulate its own temperature. I have a 2.5 gallon for Drago, and I am setting up a new 5.5 gallon. I need a heater for each... suggestions?
I just brought and Elite 50 watt adjustable heater for my 5 gallon and so far its been doing to great job. I had a preset one too and it just didnt work to keep the temp where it should be. If your shopping on line check out Amazon they are some good prices on the heaters thats where I got mine. A few people told me the Elite heaters are very good so that why I went with that brand.
Thanks, Perseusmom. Do you have a suggestion for the 2.5 gallon? That's the one that is most pressing. The 5.5 gallon isn't set up yet, so I have some time to figure that out, but Drago is getting cold at night! I want to get him a nice, steady temperature ASAP!
No worries, I appreciate the suggestion for the 5 gallon! I am okay with either ordering online or buying at a store. I'd prefer to buy at a pet store, but again, I don't mind buying online. Thanks for your help!
Your very welcome I hope it gets here soon so Drago can be nice and cozy at night..he is a pretty boy, is he a crowntail ? I have crowntail they are awesome of course they all are awesome !!!
I just found this one, its just like the 50 watt one I have buts its 25 watt and adjustable and is a few dollars cheaper then the other one, if you want this one and have ordered the other one you can cancel that order and get this one, its up to they both seem to be great heaters.
