Aquatop heater?

The heater in my 10g stopped working properly (it wouldn't shut itself off and was making the tank WAY too hot) so I am in need of a new heater! I was looking at getting the 50watt Aquatop glass heater, here: http://www.truaqua.com/aquarium-subm...ater-gh50.html

Has anyone used this heater? Like it or don't? Any suggestions on other heaters if you think they'd be better? I don't think I'd need higher wattage than that - I live in Florida, so it's not like it would be struggling to heat through the winter.

The 10g currently has just a betta in it, though I may add a school of rasboras or something similar at some point, if that makes a difference.

I have a 100W in my 10 and 20 gallons and a 50W in my eight. I haven't had issues with any of them.

If you go with the GH send me a PM and I'll give you the 10% site-wide discount code. I would get the 100W. You never know but you might buy a larger tank some day.

Thanks Russell! Have you used the digital display ones, too? I was also considering that, but couldn't decide if the digital was worth the price difference..

My thoughts, exactly! Decided it wasn't and went with the GH.

I bought a 100 watt just because it was the cheapest, its on my 6g aquatop bowfront (don' recommend the tank.. its silicone gerates white slime O.o my aquatop cube does not have this issue, anyways I do recommend the heater).

Yea! And I was wrong....it's 20% off site wide; not 10%.
