the hagen elites are submersible....
it seems that they are out of 25w, the 50w will work too. it's exactly the same thing.

I have this 10w aqueon heater. I like it but you have to keep your eye on the thermometer. It kept my 2.5g heated steady for months at 80F.

Depending on the outside temp. Mine heats the water quite fast actually, my .5g snail tank heats from 65F to a comfortable 80F in about a half hour. (I wouldn't let a betta acclimate that fast)

I just researched heater for my 1.5 to 2.5 gal tanks ---- and settle on two :
Hydor Theo submersible and


Marineland Visi-Therm

Both submersible and both 25 W and you set your own temp. Both works great. Keeps tanks at 80.
I had the presets and the temps cannot really be controlled.


And found a great price on amazon

I just bought this one today and my 2.5Aquean mini bow is about 86. How warm is too warm? Would it work better in my 5gal?

86 is too warm. 78-80 is where you would like to be.

Aqueon has life time warranties on their heaters. I suggest giving them a call. They will probably send you out a new one if your temps are too high.
