Ok. Just turn the heater to around 70 degrees and check the thermometer after a few mins to see if its up to date. Just make sure the thermometer doesn't say more than 71-72 degrees.

You'll just have to keep a close eye on the thermometer readings. You might want to do a test run in an empty tub/tank of a similar size to see if it will be okay before adding it to a tank with fish.

You can do the test run thing too. Either way works ( checking thermometer or tub test ).

You know you can cancel orders you place on amazon right? 200 watts for a 10g...... that wont even fit in there TBH. 50 watts would have been perfect from petsmart. We have an unlimited return policy and would replace it over 100 times for you. Thats a good deal

Wow. Petsmart ( I'm guessing you work there? ) can replace them when they break down?
If he puts the heater sideways, it should fit but it will look pretty big.

Yes I work there. We will take anything back, from broken to used to just plain bored of it. I like our return policy. Sometimes we even take back stuff bought from different stores (petco, wal-mart) if we have the same item. I woul definitely look at a petsmart heater.

That's an amazing return policy that I actually never knew of. And even if its bought from another store and you have the item...... Phew, I've always liked petsmart over petco.
The only thing is that petsmart doesn't always have the heater I want/like. Most of the time, they only have the aqueons and tetras. I like the Aqueon pro but I usually see it at petco and not petsmart. I usually just end up buying it from amazon.
