Set it on high, you can always turn it on low...or if there is no happy median get a $5 timer at wal-mart and set it on intervals to get the right temp..

i've been using a 50 watt submersible with completely adjustable temps.  it works great and i got it on ebay for $10.  i wouldn't trust something with just lo and hi.  if you want total control, go with something more controlable.  though, if you have the time to do some experiments with it, it might turn out that lo and hi simply stand for fruit and incubate :smile:

Wal-mart has them, they are Tetra heaters. They have a temp guage that you can slide around. It is like 10-15$.

Hey, guys! Don't be so quick to fork out money. Visit your local tropical fish stores. Most non-franchised stores have used items and if you find a few, they'll be about 1/10th of what you'd pay for it new.

i could set it on high but i work 8 hours a day so it would have to stay on high for about 5-6 hours strait and then i could come home and change it.. but i dont want to set it on high for that long with out knowing for sure.. and about that "tetra heater" you said at wal-mart.. could i actually set it to a certain temp.. and it would stay at that temp. for as long as its plugged in?

I've bought but yet to use a heater from Wal-Mart. There was 3 different Tetra models -- basically looked the same -- and a small, cheap one for like $7.

I got the Tetra Whisper Heater for 5-15 gallons. It has suction cups on the base and a temperature adjustment on the side. It is basically a "thumb-knob" that turns 180 degrees (low to high), so there are countless settings. I wish it could be adjusted from the plug end (not in the water).

I've got the Tetra model right above yours, same problem.. in tank adjustment... what were they thinking when then designed that thing?! People would have to go dig around their tank through slimy azz rocks to set the temp differently... grrrrrrr!! Oh well... thing works out fantastic!

I've been having troubles with the crappy glass aquarium heaters. They keep breaking!
Well I found that most hydroponic stores have these nice 300 watt titanium heaters with external controls! I bet they will never break or wear out!
The ones I bought are by a company called ViaAqua, they call it a titanium tube. But I bet there are many others like it. I love mine and have bought several more since. The 300 watt costs $45, they come in wattages as low as 50 watts.

They break only if you take them out while plugged in.
