Heaters

So far, I have looked at Petsmart and Feeders Supply for a 25 watt Marineland stealth visitherm and can't find any. They have the 50 watt and above but no 25 watts. Would a 50 watt possibly work in a 2.5 gallon if the heat is turned down or would that not be a good idea? I can't find the 25 watt anywhere online, except drsfosterandsmith and they are 25.99 plus shipping on top of that! Yikes!! That's a little more than I want to pay. I may just go to Walmart and get another Tetra whisper. Its working ok in Rusty's tank.

Well there you go! It sort of depends on the heater... even my 25w will totally cook my 2.5 gallon (despite tempersture control).

My 25 watt works fine in my 2.5 gallon critter keeper.

wow i just went to petsmart and got a 10w for a 2.5 gal for 12.99, i put it on a timer that cost me 3.99 and it keeps my water temp at a constant 78, chloe is finally getting use to the warmer water as she tends to like it on the colder side

sometimes i think we just get lucky with the heaters........some work better than others despite the brand or the wattage

I have a 25w in my four gallon. I can't turn it up to high, because I keep blowing a circuit. :) LOL

I works great though. I got y 25w Visi therm deluxe for only 17.00 it was on sale though. :)

The one I got last year was on sale at Marinedepot but they aren't on sale this year. :( I'll just go to Walmart and get one of those Tetra whispers. Petsmart doesn't have 25 watt heaters.Neither does Feeders Supply.

I have a tetra heater too. I put it in last night to start heating up the tank. The water was 68, and now it's only 73...the heater in my 10 gal was much quicker.
