I had one in my one gallon and it made it too hot. But in my 5 gallon it works great. I have mine under the gravel and Kokomo likes to lay on it.

I don't think I'll try one in a one gallon. Just 1.5 and 2 gallons.

I don't know when I'll be able to get out and get one. I may have to order one if I can't find it at Petsmart. But I'll let you know.

I have one of the small Tetra brand they sell at Walmart in Herseys 2.5 gallon and it works great. It comes preset at I think 76 degrees and he is happy in there. I think it was about $15.00 but I can not remember.

I have one of those in a 2.5 gallon. I don't have a thermometer in there so I don't know what the temperature is.

I had a Hydor Mini in my first tank, which was 2 gallons. Generally, it raised the temperature around 4-5 degrees for me.

I got a bit scared of it after the first time I left it on overnight; it heated my tank up more than usual, to 84 degrees. I haven't used it since then. I really love my Hydor Theo heater though. <3

I had one of those little ones (not a Hydor though) that came with my new 5 gal and it didn't do a thing. I'm too afraid to use them because they don't have any thermostat at all unlike the adjustable and preset ones. Seeing how I'm not home most of the time I really can't take the risk with fluctuating temps like that...not to mention that our house fluctuates a lot.

IMO it's just easier to spend $15 more on a good one.
