DO NOT BUY THIS HEATER
Date:June 7, 2010
fromSan Antonio, TX
My old heater that came with the tank was looking bad, covered with calcium from our Texas hardwater. I found this heater at a local pet store for about $20. It was one of the least expensive ones I had found. Now I think I know why. I swapped the heaters out and it seemed to be working fine.
A couple of days after installing it, it kept the temp where I usually have it, around 80 degrees. Another couple of days pass and I notice the temp had dropped down to about 78. I figured maybe the heater ran a little cooler than what you set it at, so I bumped it up to about 82. The light NEVER went off and the temp NEVER went back up. I cranked it up to 86 and got the same results. This CHEAP heater stopped heating after barely a week!?
If the store doesn't take it back, according to the heater packaging I have to pay to ship it to them PLUS pay another $4 on top of that. Suddenly the $20 heater could wind up costing $30+. Seems I should have just paid a little more for ANOTHER brand in the first place. Stay away from these CHEAP aquarium heaters.
