    found a good deal on a 50 W with adjustable cotrol, would that be over kill, even if i set it at lowest temp? guy that has them, also has a few other fish products i want, so shippig would be free, he just doesnt have a 25w

    Ordered an aqueon fifty wat heater for my species specific tank i can't get the hundred watt heater to stay where i want it. i want to finish cycling the rest of the bacteria on the tank at 79 degrees. when i get the fish i'll keep it at 76 degrees to prevent breeding.

    the only good thing about the heater i got right now on the fishless cycle 10 gallon is that it's slotted itself at 84 degrees. but that's not where i want it to stay in the long run.

    10 gal shrimp tank planted with java fern on driftwood, star shaped foreground plants, mossball, dwarf baby tears. cherry, ninja, algae eating, and ghost shrimp. And Cherry Shrimp babies

    also yes i think it would be overkll. you'd need to set it at half the temperture you want it at.

    I actually have a 50w in my 6 gallon Fluval edge. You have to gauge the temperature very carefully using a very good thermometer in the tank, and adjusting slowly. My Heater is set at 76, yet keeps the tank at 82. I use a Marina digital thermometer to track the most accurate temperature.

    I found the 25w had to work much too hard to maintain 82, and was on constantly.
    2 10 gallon tanks, 1 20 gallon tank, 1 Fluval Edge, 1 29 gallon tank, and one backyard pond.

    Just like Tiari mentioned, I would rather set a heater at a lower temp so it's off most of the time than have a heater struggle to maintain a temp - it could burn out too fast that way.
