Heaters

I'm sorry... I know I read the other day a list of different heaters that people liked, but I can't seem to find it and I haven't figured out how to get the search to work for me....

If you wouldn't mind again.. I'm looking for a heater for 5 gallon tank. What brands do you like?

Thanks in advance.

Elite.

They're the best, 50w Elite Submersible Pre-Set heater will be perfect for a 5g.

First, you need a thermometer.
I like Hydor heaters because they are small yet powerful. An adjustable heater is the way to go, imo. You will not be able to control the temp with preset ones. The thermometer will help you determine the actual temperature of the tank so you can adjust the heater as needed. Never trust the heater dial to tell you the temperature of your tank.

Hydor Theo, you have to tweak it a bit, but you can get it to sit at 78, or 80 or even 81 and have happy bettas.
