Ok. I just took a look at it on amazon. You do know it HAS TO be submersed? And at least it has a built in thermometer and has an auto shutdown system.

I've learned from experience. I'll never buy a cheap heater again. The thermostat on mine got stuck and all my fish died from extreme heat. It was awful. I know this could happen on any heater but I think you're better off getting a good heater.

+1. Go for a good one right off the bat and not risk the chance of killing all you fish just to save some money on a heater.

Ok. Good luck .
That was a pretty wise choice IMO ( returning the heater and going for 50w ).

I have moved this thread from the classifieds section to general hardware and equipment discussion. The classifieds is not the place to discuss equipment. It is a place to buy, trade and sell.

Quote:
-DO NOT post links to craigslist, ebay, or other sites advertising a sale. This forum is only to be used by our members to sell, trade, or buy personally held items. Do not post ads for deals found elsewhere. If you want to advertise a good deal, this is not the forum to do so.
Quote:
-DO NOT post comments, suggestions, criticism, etc. If you have a question about the specific item for sale/trade, you are welcome to ask questions, but please do so only if you are interested in buying or trading.
Please Read Before Posting in Classifieds
