got my new heater today (ocean aqua 19000/ technic 50w adjustable) and I tested it out for about 90min in a tupperware jug then rinsed it really well and added it to my tank. so far its been holding steady now at 80 degrees for about 8hrs. I think its safe to say its working. I set it for 26C/80F and its right on the money. wish it wasnt so big but I took the black cap off the end so it wasnt so obtrusive looking in my little 2g tank (that cap made it look really tacky!) and tried to hide it a bit in some plants. I guess in the big scheme of things it matters more that my fish is safe and warm rather than my tank looking just perfect...hopefully this heater will last a while cuz Im tired of all this trial & error....& Im sure my poor turtle is happy to have his heat mat back lol

yeah thats kinda how I feel about it too...Im sure I will get used to looking at it and not even notice it eventually. well maybe not as much heheheh....im kinda glad I got the 50w tho b/c when I DO upgrade him I should be able to just use that one and not buy a new one...good luck with your theo, if this one craps out I will probably try that one (KNOCK ON WOOD!)

Haha, I got new plants to try to hide it a bit. Bahari is more interested in the thermometer than the heater lol.

Just wanted to say thanks for having mentioned dr fosters and smith, it reminded me I could get my light fixture cheaper there :D

Also, hydor theo 25W is perfect for a 2.5 G tank.
