300 Watt Heater for Ten Gallon

I made the mistake of buying a 300 watt heater for a ten gallon tank... -_-....
It's adjustable.. can I still use it?

I think you can try. I have a big heater but not sure the watts. I set it at very closed to minimum, and I got about 82F

I also have 25W for 10gal and it really heats up the tank.

I also just bought 250W and I will also use in 10gal tank. With adjustable knots I think you can adjust it.

I also have 7.5W heater in 5gal tank, and it works also just fine.

No harm in trying just watch the temp on a thermometer to make sure it doesn't get too hot.
