Frequently Asked Questions

Should the heater be kept on during the summer?

The heater works in any position. It can either be hung onto the sides of the tank or placed on the bottom. However, pay attention to the position of the aquarium Mini Heater is to operate in.

Can I use a Mini Heater in a terrarium?

  • 7.5W Aquarium Heater / Hydor

    By on

    Needed a small heater for 2 gal. water change bucket and this works perfectly for that job. This heater is not adjustable and does not have an off switch. It heats to about 5 degrees higher than the room temperature, so you need to keep an eye on the temperature by other means and unplug it when water heats to the target zone.

  • aquarium Heater

    By on

    I have a 3.5 gallon betta aquarium. This heater was a great price, and worked great...for a few days. After about a week, the water temperature fluctuated about 8 degrees up and down throughout the day. I ended up buying g a different heater from a local pet store.

    Heater is operating as expected. It keeps it in the ideal temp for my 3 gallon tank. My beta is active and happy.

  • Exactly what we needed

    By on

    This little heater was exactly what we needed for our one gallon tank and betta fish, Finn. He's a lot more active now that his water is the correct temperature.

  • Good but takes a while :)

    By on

    Small heater for small size tanks. If you are in a hurry, use another method to heat your tank. This will maintain a lukewarm temperature on the side or under the rocks in your tank. It looks better hidden under the substrate and does a fine job, even in an air-conditioned room.

  • Works as directed!

    By on

    Brought my 2.5 gallon tank for my betta up from 71 to 78, just what I needed. The only thing im picky about is it sticks out with a curve to it- it'd look nice if i had one of those giant 3 gallon bowls, though.
