Heater for small tank
I'm getting a fluval spec v tomorrow and have been looking into small heaters ,leaning towards a aqueous 10w! Any comments or suggestions? Freshwater , planted , maybe some neon tetras something small and hardy

I guess the best thing will be to set everything up, and see how the room temp is in the house first. then need to figure out what watt for 5.6 gallons etc. placement can change how much heater i might need etc.

I use an Aqueon 50 watt in my Fluval Spec V. It fits in the same compartment with the pump.

Whatever heater you decide to get, it's best to look for one that is adjustable.46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, green corys, 1 guppy, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
5 gal QT with green corys & 2 guppies
