Lol. The 100, 150, and 200 watt heaters are LESS expensive than the 50 watt. If you get that heater, go for the 100 watt one.

A 200 watt heater for a 10 gal is way overkill and can overheat the tank. A 50-100 watt heater is the better choice. Which heater is it? Do they have that heater at a lower wattage?

Crud! I already ordered... But how would it overheat if set to the right temp? Could I set it lower but have it the correct temp? Oh, (insert appropriate deity here)! What have I done?

Is the heater ordered on amazon prime? Well, if you ordered it, ( and its not prime ), then there's nothing we can do. I mean, it's a 50/50 chance that you get a heater that will overheat the tank when its over wattaged. You really want 5-7 watts per gallon. If its prime, then you can return it for free. At first, try putting the heater at a lower temp and see if the temp stays at that given temp at a steady rate. If it does, then slowly set it back up to the normal temp and all the while, keep a watchful eye on any temp raises above the given temp.

Do you have a thermometer on the tank?
