Hydor mini heaters

How many of you have Hydor mini heaters and what size tank do you have them in?

I have one in a four gallon, but it does squat. MAYBE raises the temp by one degree? I'm still not taking it out, though, since one degree is still one degree warmer than before. It worked better in smaller tanks, imo.

I was thinking of using one for a 1.5 to 2 gallon tank.

I just checked the tank with the heater, and I now bow my head in shame. It's doing wonders for his tank. Poor Ace, Deimos, and Cyrus all have absolutely freezing tanks, and Bliss has his at 74. While not ideal, and still a little chilly, it's certainly better than the ice water that's in three named before. I would say go for it. It's better than having them freeze.

I'm going to check at Petsmart to see what they have. I'm going to order a stealth visitherm for one of my 2.5 gallons. I have one in Jaden's tank and it keeps him toasty warm.

The hydor mini heater makes me nervous with the fact it doesn't have any kind of thermostat on it.

Yeah, I guess you have to be really careful to monitor the temperature.

but on the other hand- since its undergravel the fish isn't going to rub on it- it's not going to get detached- and its not an eyesore- i know from keeping reptiles for many years that a heater can be a dangerous thing if you're not careful with it.

Are Hydor mini heaters meant to be buried under the gravel?

You can do either with it -- attach it to the side of the tank or put it under the gravel.
