Heaters

I'm looking for a reasonably priced, effecient heater. I was wondering if somebody might be able to recommend one to me. :) Thanks!

Is this a good one?

What size tank?

I don't recommend those 'slim' heaters.
Something with a thermostat in it is best!
I use Aqueon brand, pretty much everything.
They aren't the -cheapest- but... remember - you get what you pay for; definitely the case with heaters.

Ah, ok.
I have this one -- http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=3792732
in my 3 gallon.

I would say, hang on to the receipt tho... sometimes, these can be hit-or-miss.
And make sure you will be around to supervise for a few hours, while the temp adjusts (fish not in), just to be on the safe side!
Mine does a good job at keeping the temp at 78F.

I'm happy to try to help if you have any more q's about it

i bought that one a couple months ago from petsmart, but it made my water way too hot, up to 86* F. i returned it. i agree though, if you want to try it out, do it. it could be that i just bought a faulty one.

i've heard that this one works really well, plus it's practically a bargain!:

i plan to buy that one soon.

I tried looking in some of our local stores and they don't sell this one. :( It sounds really good from the recommendations and reviews.
