Need a heater...

I have an old-school mercury thermometer that I put in my tank because it's the only thing I had at the time being, and I noticed yesterday morning that my water was getting a little on the chilly side. It's only September, so I'll definitely need a heater.

A used one (free) came with the tank, but it doesn't do jack.

I want a nice one, so what do you all think about the "Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm 75W"? Found one new for $40. Made in Europe, not China.

They are made in Poland. I have 3 and I absolutely LOVE them! They are spot on accurate. They don't fluctuate all over the place like some cheap heaters do. They have a 3 year warranty so save your receipt and the box. I highly recommend these heaters and will probably be replacing all my heaters with the Cobalt digitals.

That's all I needed to hear, I'm sold! Can't stand buying Chinese junk that breaks within a few uses. I'd pay 100$ if I knew the quality was legit and would last! 40$ is all the better

I have not used them personally, but I have heard good things about them.

Cool, keep us updated. Their stuff is pretty new compared to the bigger brands, and there is less info out there about it. Hope you like it.

That's expensive for a 75W no? I find that the marineland and Fluvals work just fine and aren't that expensive

That depends what you deem expensive. There are 8$ ones on eBay. I have disposable income, what is 40$...

I'm not talkin the Chinese garbage I'm talking quality like Fluval and Marineland as I stated earlier. And not sure if that was sarcasm but most of us don't have expendable income. If you can blow $40 on a 75w heater all the power to you but I think most of us are less than concerned with how well off you are.
