kyle89 when I read your post I thought it said gravel was not a good substrate for most plants I was so confused...Also in your second post are you talking about the heater or the filter?

Thanks for the picture Tikibirds. I was thinking of ditching the carbon cartridges but I'll atleast use the one that comes with the tank. And I would never buy a top fin heater.

By the way, how do I quote someone?

I have an Aqueon heater in my tank. It's 100 watts, which is kind of over kill for a 10 gallon, but it works and heats it to what it's set to, so it's fine with me. They have a 50 watt one too, at Petsmart, that you could buy. I think it's worth it. It has a lifetime warranty. :)

Click on the first blue button on the bottom of the post that says quote and yes I was talking the tip fin heater. Had it and returned it 2 days later. Aqueon is also another good aquarium supply brand. I I'm looking at a aqueon 10 filter for my tank.

Oh..wow that quote button is obvious. Oops.
Anyway thanks kyle. I think the aqueon heater sounds good, but it'd cost more than the tank...I've heard nothing good about top fin heaters so that's out of the question.

Adjustable is the way to go. You pay a little extra but its work it. I believe the aqueon is 25 at pet smart.

Yeah, around there. The Aqueon 50 watt is about $25 with PetPerks, I think. The 100 watt was cheaper though, for some reason, which was why I bought it instead of the 50 watt.

Yeah adjustable would be nice...
My dad had said he'd buy me a heater (a while ago), maybe I can convince him to get that one .

By the way, I've heard that the aqueon heaters click. Is that true? That would probably annoy me to no end...

They do, but it isn't that bad. It isn't really all that noticeable. Mine was at first, but now that it's in my 10 gallon, I never hear it.

I've got six of these heaters, and every one has worked well, no problems.
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-Heater-1-ct/10291808

I got the first one back in the very beginning when I didn't know any better, and it always worked well, so I just stuck with the brand. Two of mine have been running for over a year with no issues, so I can vouch for them for at least that long. The only one I've ever managed to kill was one I took out of the tank and forgot it was still plugged in. That one burned out...but I don't believe that can be blamed on the heater. :)

I hope that helps!! Also, if you get the heater at walmart, use it for a bit, and if it stops working, you can always take it back. They've got a very lax return policy, and will take it back even if it's been a few months if you tell them it stopped working. :)
