    Life Saver!

    By Makayla on Dec 29, 2018

    I had a previous heater that never got my water above 73 degrees F even though it claimed to be preset to 78. This item was only a few dollars more but ended up being astronomically better! It had the water heated up to a tropical 80 before I came home from work that night! In love w/ another in cart I had a previous heater that never got my water above 73 degrees F even though it claimed to be preset to 78.

    Can't keep a steady temperature.

    By Terrible on Jan 15, 2019

    I bought two of these and one the temp swings terrible and isn't near what the dial is set to. I replaced it today with another brand from PetSmart and it's the first time since I started the aquarium that my Apex Controller isn't being used as a thermostat.

I pulled the bad heater out and replaced it. I am currently using it temporary when I make new water where it can't kill the fish if it runs a little hotter. I have it protected to turn off if it doesn't on it's own. … more

  • Finally, a heater that works!

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    I've had this 100 watt Aqueon heater for about a year now, and it works great! I've used this heater in tanks as small as 12 gallons to tanks as big as 40 gallons, and it still holds up! I usually have it set to 78°F, so this heater sure does have to work hard, however if it's been working for a year, then it must be a good heater!

  • I'm 50/50 right now on the 150watt

    By on

    Going to talk to chewy about it.. bought 2 150s for my 125g, one makings a rather persistent popping sound like wood creaking.. they heat the water fine but I had to unplug that one.. this is why you divide your heaters :)

  • Well, it does the job, but...

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I have the thermostat of my 50 watt heater in my 5.5 gallon tank set all the way up to 84 degrees. It does turn on and off, but the temp has yet to reach 80, which is where I want it. It's close enough and keeping things constant, but just worries me having it set on 84.
