    I love this heater

    By Phoebe on Mar 23, 2021

    I bought this heater in early winter and I am shocked by the negative reviews. I've had zero problems with it. Great for a baby turtle in a small, shallow tank! This helped keep my shellkid warm through the New England winter when two hanging overhead ceramic heaters couldn't cut it.

    Inconsistent heating

    By Seven on Apr 13, 2021

    I like the thin flat shape of this heater. It started to run very hot and was getting too warm for my betta. There is no adjustment other than unplugging it when it gets too warm. I had it in a 2.6 gallon planted betta/shrimp tank with an external filter and full spectrum leds.

    Doesn't warm water

    By on

    Bought 2 for my turtle tank. I could feel it warmed itself a little but not enough to warm the water. 2 days later it doesn't work at all. Called the help # and they refunded the money instantly. Wasn't expecting that with no hassle. Very impressed with the customer service but not with the item.

    I really like how chewy does business.

    By on

    My review is for chewy. I was not able to use the heater, my outside outlet doesn't work.

    Doesn't work

    By on

    This heater does not work at all. Water is cold after 24 hours plugged in. I only gave it one star because it wouldn't let me leave a 0

    Not just for fish

    By on

    This is for the 15w heater. I purchased this as a way to keep a large (cooking/pasta) pot of water, for the neighborhood cats, from freezing in 20 degree and below weather and so far it's working perfectly.

    Doesn't work

    By on

    This heats my 3 gallon tank 1 degree higher than the 5 watt Aqueon heater I tried previously. Not impressed. I'm skeptical of buying the next size up after reading reviews. It seems fish tank heaters either boil your fish or outright don't work.

    Do Not Buy

    By on

    I thought this would be good for my betta fish tank as one review said but it only raises the temperature 2-4 degrees above room temperature. Bettas need water temperature between 78-80 degrees and this heater only raised it to 72. DO NOT BUY THIS FOR YOUR BETTA! Take the time and put money into a good aquarium heater
