View Full Version : Substrate heater enough?

Again...reading conflicting info.

If I have a substrate heater in the tank, do I also need a regular heater? Or will the substrate heater be enough...

...and I've never seen a substrate heater for sale, so I can't read the specs...but do they also have a thermostat???


Confused on the Prairie ;)
