Gah, I had all of this typed up and then Firefox crashed. Grrr.
Anyway, I've been lurking this forum for a month or so now, and I'm finally getting around to posting due to some problems I've had with heaters. I'm currently on my third heater for my 3-gallon.
I've tried two 2-10 gallon heaters from tetra. The first didn't work at all. The little LED that's supposed to be red/green when the heater is functioning wouldn't even turn on. The second seems to think that 71 degrees is 78....
I've also tried the marineland 10w mini-heater, since I've had really good experiences with marineland. (a week after I bought my 6 gallon eclipse, the lighting hood died. They got me a new one within a couple of days, plus I have one of their visi-therm heaters in the same tank) The heater worked....too well. Came home from class the day after I bought it and found my 3-gallon at 96 degrees! Needless to say, I returned the heater.
So here I am today. :( Does anyone recommend any types of heaters? Preferably adjustable, but if not, that's okay. I just don't want poor Zephyr getting cold. I'm a bit iffy with ordering online, since returning items is a bit more tricky, but at this point I think I'm going to have to as I can't find any different types of heaters at my LFS's.
Sorry for the wall of text. ^_^;
