Stormy and heater questions?

hi all,

stormy has been very comfortable today. his tank was 79-78 all day today. our heat wave broke for a while at least. :) so if tonight gets cooler I have 2 heaters I can plug in but I think they are kind of the same? need opinions? one is marina 10w submersible and the other is the same thing basically but aqueon. ( I did not know what I was doing when shopping apparently) they both say they will heat up to 78. you cant adjust them. if it gets warm again I unplug heater. do you think one of these will be ok or should I go to the store or what? lol I also have to find my extension cord since his light and filter are currently taking up the outlet lol. I can use a regular extension cord, correct? his light is on now I turned it on when I came home and its got his tank at 79 but I don't want his light on all night...

Don't need to unplug.. they will heat up to the right temp and then turn themselves off on their own. Extension cord is fine to use.. and either heater - keep an eye on the temp to make sure it works properly.

I forget which one I think I read in the aqueon manual if room temp goes above 78 it is recommended to unplug it. I don't know about he other. But I don't need an adjustable really? Ok I thought there may be a special extension cord or something I wasn't sure.
