fishtank heater purchasing tip
    #3357270 - 11/13/04 09:30 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

do not buy the cheapist one at your local pet store. i paid $12.99 for mine, and it is a peice of junk. it has an ajustable temperature knob that needs to be on max to produce enough heat in my TiT system (large rubbermade tubs). its major downfall is that it turns off, for no reason, from time to time. i'll go out for a while, come back and my temp has dropped from 79-80 to 72. it is quite frustrating.

spend the extra $5 and get a decent heater. i wish i knew what kind i bought so i could tell you, but i threw the box away and the thing is so ghetto it doesn't even have the name written on it :-\

so, i am going to have to drop $20 on a new one :-(

I stole my unsubmergible one for free. It works great. Sorry to hear about your luck.

I just got a 200watt heater today :laugh:

I am going to build the ultimate incubator tonight, I used a heatpad for way to long.
(now the heatpad will be used to heat a bulk tub etc etc)

Just use common sense and don't get the cheapo. I've been using the ones I got in aquariums for ten years now and they still work great. Like Lippy said, the best one is only $5 more than the cheapest one.
