Nice heater. Keeps my 5 gallon tank at 75 F don’t make the mistake of putting plants to close to it though. If they touch the heater consistently that part of the plant will die.
Perfect size for smaller aquarium
This little heater keeps my 6.4G tank at 75-76F. It was running 69-70F before I got a heater. I just have aquatic plants, Ramshorn snails, and a few Endlers, but thought they'd appreciate the extra heat. The small form factor looks nice in the tank and I appreciate the auto turn off when I do water changes and forget to turn off the heater.
Great small heater for my nano aquarium
This was exactly what I needed.
The title may be a little misleading, but this heater came in clutch when I was heading out to a frag swap in Vancouver, WA. I wanted to make sure that I not only brought frags, but that I brought them looking as good as possible. I purchased this heater with the USB Nano Pump and it made for the perfect traveling aquarium (I had to use a power inverter hooked up to a separate battery in my car to power the heater). The heater and pump did it's job and I scored a solid $160 off of purchases that day because of it. Thanks Aquarium Co-Op!
I put this in a 6 gallon but it wouldn't heat above 76. It's only rated for 5 gallons or less, so I added another heater, it still didn't go over 76. I tried a known good thermometer that I use in another tank, still reads 76. I used my TDS meter that also has a thermometer, it still reads 76. I added a THIRD heater (all three on at the same time in a 6 gallon tank). It's still 76. I read another review here that had the same problem. I spent $75 on heaters that don't work.
This little heater is built well and fit absolutely perfect in my fluval spec 5 gallon pea puffer tank! Was able to hide it right above the pump! It’s like it’s not even there!
Up to par so far
Bought this to replace a heater that had paint flaking off for my 5 gallon nano tank. Works like it’s supposed to and I like the sleek design.
