I get an average from most of 4 degrees. the colder the room the more it will reflex this too.
stupid me thinking I had any idea what I was talking about.
I just find It heard to believe that a 50 watt heater on full blast would not heat a small tank by more than 4* when a 25 watt heater could raise a similar size tank by 10* easily (example 3 gallons or so).
Other 50 watt heaters heat tanks larger just fine.
Possibly these heaters are defective?
I'm not saying your wrong, but my tank with the Walmart heater is 13*f warmer than my room, but then again my tank is only 2 gallons, So yeah I cant know for sure.
I'm new on these forums so take what I say with a grain of salt :) but from pure math and numbers that heater should keep the tank more than 4* above room temp if needed.
No hard feelings.
