or at least, I think it's this one...
or it could have been this one
Anyone have any experience with these or any input that might be helpful?
I've used the Hydor heater before, and I'm probably one of the few who wasn't completely satisfied with it. It could never get my tank in the 78* range (it would mainly stay around 75*), even when I set it to 81*. Most people have used it with success, though.
If you're not adverse to buying online, I highly recommend the Elite 25 watt adjustable heater. I use it in my 5 gal and I have no problems keeping my tank in the 78*-80* range. And the heater itself is only $10 plus shipping. Cheaper than buying a heater at the store in most cases.
