^ as all heaters are if they're in too small of a tank that they're not rated for, or sometimes they are. That's why it's important to have a thermometer in the tank since you can't rely on any of the adjustable heaters to actually heat at what you adjusted it to

It's weird, though, because the one in my 10 gallon is a 50 watt, which is what is recommended for that tank size, and the one in my 55 gallon is a 200 watt, which is also the recommended one for that tank size.

Yeah it doesn't really matter, if it's recommended or over, then it will heat more. If you had put a 25 watt in the 10 gallon then yeah, it'd probably be a little more accurate to what you set it on, but heaters are never accurate no matter why. Hence again, always important to have a thermometer
