I actually have a 50 watt tetra preset heater that I am using for less then 1 gallon. I dont know if mine is defective or what but it can barely keep the temp at 75 and its designed for a 10 gallon tank

I think zoomed makes a heater thats 7.5 watts. From what i heard about these smaller heaters is you have to watch them because they do not turn off when the temp gets to a certain level.

'Zoomed' is the brand name?
