The heater works pretty well, but as a warning, it is NOT water proof! When I fill my tank up to where it touches the blue plastic, water leaks inside of the glass tube and gets in the electronics
But besides that, it does a decent job of keeping my water warm, even though sometimes it's a tad finicky. You have to let it acclimate for 20 minutes before plugging it in after a water change.
I'd say it's worth it for the price, my water has never gotten below 76 or above 86 when I've let it acclimate properly , even with all the crazy temperature swings in my dorm and our crazy weather. In the 70's on day and in the 40's the next! :/
It usually keeps the water decently stable, within 2-3 degrees.
