Its not the only one I was considering ... No need for the attack ... I was looking at it because ADF's are known escape artists ...

My current tank has a fairly expensive heater and I just don't have the money for another right now ... I would like to spend $15 or less

I wish this one had reviews http://www.amazon.com/Jardin-Aquariu...316106&sr=1-51

Anyone have any suggestions for cheap good heaters?

I used the Elite heater for almost a year before I decided to upgrade to a fully submersible one, and in all honesty, it worked very well. It held the temperature stable at all times (and I checked at least twice a day, every day), but I needed to top the tank off rather often to keep it at the minimum water line.

Keep in mind though, it seems like I got one of the somewhat rare good units of this model. I'd probably go with a heater that has more consistent positive reviews.

You could look into the Hydor Theo heaters - they are a little bit outside of your price range, but they are considered by many to be extremely reliable and are pretty inexpensive as far as heaters go.

Ell- I actually just ordered that Aquatop 50watt. My total bill with shipping was $15.22, I like to look at reviews. Of course there will be some duds. I seen the other higher watt models and they are rated pretty well.

If you don't mind waiting a bit for shipping, I can't remember who it was who posted it, but there was a super-cheap submersible adjustable heater on eBay that was apparently great.

Sorry I can't be more helpful, it was a post I saw in passing a little while ago... >.<

I would go for the Aquatop one, I've heard very good things about them. The Deep Blue 60 watt is not adjustable & the Jardin one is 220v, you will need an adapter to use it in the US.
