I've never had heaters before so they scare me too. I'm afraid of electrocuting my fish or myself. lol

lol. im going to guess that the heaters today are most likely of better quality then the heaters 10 or so years ago, but still i completely understand that.

Is it normal for a good heater to have temperature fluctuations or should the temp remain pretty steady?

It should remain steady. Though it can be off by a few degrees or so. Thats what i noticed with the visi-therms.

Mine seems to fluctuate but not by whole degrees. It will be like 77.6 then 77.4 then back up to 77.8 and so on...

I wouldn't think that type of fluctuation would be a cause for concern. That is a very small fluctuation, IMO.
