I adjusted to right at 80 (26.6c if Im not mistaken) and now Im just watching my thermometer to make sure it stays at the right temp. I may keep my eyes peeled for a smaller one and reserve this one for a bigger tank in the future but for now atleast it beats the heat mat I was using, his temp fluctuated too much in that one ( but is was still better than nothing)

right now sushi is just circling the heater and flaring at it, but he did that when I added is thermometer as well so hopefully he will get used to it and learn to appreciate it as well. atleast till mommy can get him a smaller one....

I just redid my tank today too. Kuro pretty much ignored everything that went on. I'm just annoyed by that sand... it turned out to be too white. *throws a fit*

Lovely, Aokashi. The sand will soon be covered by that grass. It'll look nice. And, as usual, no sign of heater or filter. Amazing!

well I bought a heater off ebay and it was a 220v and I ddint know it till I had already paid so I bought a converter and needless to say I should have just sprung for a heater off amazon instead cuz theres no way Im leaving that thing plugged in after how hot it got today in just 10min (the converter) hopefully I can get them both returned and not be out too much on shipping and buy something better. I need something pretty small though b/c his tank is only 2g and its curved so its hard to fit a long heater in it (which was another gripe I had with this one, it was HUGE compared to the pic so I had to float it)

oh I have one of those, you dont need the converter, it will work perfectly.
Actually if you look real close at the pic of my tank I have above, might have the exact same one on the left :)

looks pretty close to what I have, hard to tell with the plants....heres the one I bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/140759173681...84.m1439.l2649 only the one in the pic looks nice and compact and the one I got is crazy big so Im hoping maybe they just sent me the wrong one and I can get a replacement. good to know it can be used w/o the converter, although Im such a chicken I might not lol

yep exact same one.
they took the photo from below so it looks shorter. but adjustable heaters dont really get any smaller than this one :)

it's a good heater. believe me.

and if you want more feedback on the same heater, dragonfish has like 5.... so you can pm him/her and ask
