Heater Question

I recently bought a Tetra Submersible Heater for my 20g long tank. The box says it works for 10g-30g tanks, however it doesn't seem to be working. The water is consistently in the lower 70s. Should I give it another day or so to see if it kicks in, even though I've had it for three days, or should I return it and get a better filter? Also, what brand of filter would everyone recommend? Thanks in advanced!

Thumbs down

Ooh. I actually have the same heater, but it works for me. The heater should have a light that turns on by itself to indicate that the heater is on and working. And it turns off on its own when the preset water temperature is met. Also, I've noticed that the heater will turn on and off a few times over the course of its heating period until it reaches its goal, like a typical heater for your house -- it doesn't stay on the full-time, if that makes any sense.

[Edit] Why is there a THUMBS DOWN icon thing on top of my post :(
