  1. Default Small tank heater question


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi All

    I have a 4.5 gal. Tank and want to get a good adjustable heater.

    I would also like the heater to be protected from my idiocy, in that I may....forget to unplug before draining the tank for a water change.

    I gound an Eheim heater that is almost perfect, but it is too long. The 50w is around 10" long!

    Anyone got not her option, say n the 7" long range?

    Thanks for all your help.
    Cheers
    I think I want a bigger tank!!

    Short adjustable heaters are scarce. Hagen has a few small ones that are preset.

    I have a small fixed output heater now, but it isn't working well since I forgot to unplug it while changing the water a while back.

    Has anyone used a Hydor heater? They have a short adjustable temp one.

    I have two 50W heaters. Both are compact and adjustable. One is made by a company called Superfish. The other is made by Sera (and has a good cage guard that comes with it).
