I am going to buy a heater for my 2.5 minibow tank tomorrow and i am not sure which one to get.I need some info from users please. I have the incandescent light which over the summer has been warming the water up to 8 degrees each day however in the night it drops and i live in a basement suite and as it cools off it will be more necessary to have a heater in it. I don't know which one to go with. A 7.5 watt or a 10 watt.
There is one by Auqean which made the tank,or by minibow i think and a few other ones meant for small tanks. Most as i can see are preset and aim to raise the temp about 8 degrees above ambient room temp, but i wonder how that works with the heat from the light and which ones you guys out there have the best luck with in this size of tank. Want to keep my little guy happy so please post quick guys. Thanks so much for the help.
