Yea I live in Canada probably won't need them much in the summer but come fall we will, I have a 40g breeder I got for free and I'm planning to upgrade to a 75 within a year (just waiting for the right deal)

The problem is even if you set them at the same temp one will always click on before the other

For best results buy a temp control unit then plug them both into that
A temp controller is a great bit of kit and fairly cheap
You plug both heaters into the controller and turn them above what you want the temp and then set the temp you want via the controller
Temp controllers are far more accurate than a heater thermostats

Sweetness, I understand now. Ya I had to use two heaters last winter, left one on all day and plugged the other in a trimmer so it would only kick on at nite. That's cause I dont heat the house when I'm sleeping. Just to give u another idea
