Does the Tetra preset not keep it warm enough? (I noticed the hydor mini in it too)
Thanks! It was an amazing surprise.
As to the heater; I had just set it up and wanted the water to get warm quickly, so I just shoved it in there for a little bit. I also left it in there because I was gone for a few days. However, the real answer is "I don't know." It's supposed to keep the water around 78 F +/- 2, which it did in the one gallon tank (even though it's made for a 10-30 gallon tank) at first, but then it dropped to 70 for a few days and then it started keeping it around 75. It does seem to be working now, though, for the temperature is around 77 or so. I haven't been impressed with it and need to find something I can trust. And my room is cold, so that doesn't help. I have been more impressed with hydor mini. I had a .75 gallon tank it was in and it kept the temperature around 80 all by itself. I was hoping it would do the same for the 5 gallon. So, if anyone knows of a good heater, let me know please!
