How many watts will i need for a 75 gallon tank?
Answer by ChewyMar 26, 2019
The wattage needed will depend on how many degrees you need to increase above room temperature (68-72 degrees fahrenheit). For increasing a 75 gallon aquarium 5-10 degrees fahrenheit, choose the 200 watt heater. If increasing the 75 gallon aquarium by 15 degrees fahrenheit, choose the 300 watt heater. Please see the image attached for the Heater Guidelines.

Is this heater good for red eared sliders? Also up to what degree does heater go up to cuz I'm looking for heater that can go up to 88-92 degrees. Also what does the 3rd bullet point mean when it says "complete control of aquatic climate within a 1-degree difference"?
Answer by ChewyJan 22, 2020
This Pro Heater wouldn't be suitable for a red eared slider turtle as they need a temperature gradient (95°F for the warm end/basking area and 75°F for the cool end/water). This heater has a precise temperature dial from 68-88°F and allows for complete control of aquatic climate within a 1-degree difference. This 1-degree difference is added for safety and precision.

how long is the 300watt and can you put it horizontal
Answer by ChewyMar 28, 2019
This heater can be placed vertically or horizontally. The 300 watt heater is 3.5 x 1.5 x 15.25 inches.

Can this go in a 3.5g plastic tank?
Answer by ChewyNov 07, 2019
This heater may be used in a glass or acrylic (plastic) tank.

Doesn't work or fails quickly

The old Aqueon Pro with the blue top instead of the new, clear one worked well for several years. One broke after 4 and the other is still going after 6 years. But the new Aqueon Pros have all been junk. I've tried 5 different ones, and all of them have either failed to heat to the set temperature (usually cold by a few degrees) or they failed quicker than any other brand including cheap, generic brands. I'm going to stick with my Eheims

Right on spot

This brought my temp up perfectly within a short amount of time. Very straight forward and seems to be very well made. This was bought to replace a heater that quit after a month. The temporary one just couldn't maintain the temp but this one went right to work. Very happy. I plan on getting another to have for emergencies.

Heater looks great, worked well for almost a month and then shorted out, shocked me when I touched the water and killed 2 fish that lived near it. To late to return so I replaced it with an Ehiem, a trusted product. I wish I would have returned it but I threw away all the boxes.

Defective heater

When I went to bed my Bettas tank was 80 degrees. When I woke up the next morning his tank was 75 degrees. The red indicator light was on but it wasn't heated up. I have the older version of this heater and it hasn't failed me in 2 years. This new "Pro" didn't make it 24 hours. This is why you should always keep a thermostat in your fish tank because heaters fail all the time. My poor Betta had a 5 degree temperature drop in a short period of time so I hope he doesn't get sick. Chewy has great customer service and refunded my payment so I can put it towards another heater. Thank you Chewy for standing by your products!

It Exploded!

As is my habit, I placed the heater in a 5 gallon bucket to test it before adding to my tank. It was fully submerged and vertical. I waited a full hour before plugging it in, as per the instructions. Two hours later, it quite literally exploded, sending out mangled pieces of plastic around the room. The force of the explosion was enough for the water to reach the ceiling.

Better than the Tetra brand!

After having issues with 3 Tetra pre set heaters I decided to buy 2 of these. None of the Tetra heaters reached a temperature of 75°. The Aqueon brand I bought a 50 and the 100. The 50 worked fine when set at 76° it reached the proper temperature. The 100 when set at 76° did not. In order to reach that temperature it needed to be set higher. No problem though because it can be adjusted. I will never purchase a pre set heater again.

Works great

Bought the 150 watt Aqueon heater for my 36gal tank and got it to temp fairly quick and so far no problems the 3 weeks it's been in there.

I purchased this for a 20g aquarium but found not only the dial to set the temperature was inaccurate but after a few months I had to keep bumping the temperature setting up to maintain the correct temperature. To have water at 78 deg, I had to set the heater at 81. After a few months, I had to change it to 82deg to maintain. Then eventually, 84. I didn't trust it anymore and figured it would over heat the water.

Reliable, Dependable, Affordable

I have found the Aqueon submersible and Pro heaters to be accurate and dependable. I've used other brands and at some point had problems. I have a 50W, 100W and 150W and never a problem in 2 years.
