Is it safe on a plastic tank?
Answer by ChewySep 01, 2019
If applied correctly it can safely be placed on plastic.

Is it safe to put 2 of these on a 10 gallon glass tank?
Answer by ChewyJul 27, 2018
This heater is intended for use on small tanks and it's not recommended to use more then one heater on a tank.

How big is it?
Answer by ChewySep 01, 2019
This heater measures approximately 4 x 7 inches.

Do you use it on the inside or outside of the tank? I want to get this for my garden snail tank.
Answer by ChewyMay 20, 2018
The heater should be placed outside of your terrarium.

Best Heater

This hermit crab heater is best we have found on the market. It's easy to use and we have our crabs in a hamster cage vs glass kind. We use stones and sand and these heaters make it nice for the crabs without being too hot or burning bottom of cage

Not sure what to think

I have two of these on a 5 gallon tank, it still gets no warmer than 71degrees, room is set to 68 degrees. The aquarium is covered. I'm baffled. They are both warm to touch but if each one only raises the temperature one degree, I'd need four more to get the temp I want?

Mostly great!

We keep our house pretty cool. Ordered this for our hermit crabs and they cuddled right up to it. However it does not stick as well as I’d like. One corner kept falling off so I pushed it against the wall and that works.

Subtle, Stable Heat Source

This little heater is thin and easy to apply. It raises the temperature of my small acrylic terrarium a few degrees. I adhered it to the back left outside wall of the terrarium.

Didn't work

The product did not get the tank warm enough and it quit working after a few days.

Great service

I had never ordered from Chewy before, and I was genuinely impressed with the service and the quality of the product. I received the item basically overnight, and it was not damaged or anything. The heater works great and is very small enough for the aquarium. My little crabs are much happier because of it.

worse heater

Heater did not work as I was hopeing for. It warmed up a little but barely enough for heat to come out so my hermit crab can feel it and didn’t stick very good to the cage on the side and underneath. Wouldn’t recommend to anybody to be honest! Disappointment of $15 spent save YOURE money

10 Gallon Tank

I stuck the heater to the back side corner of the tank. My Crabs burrowed themselves right next to it. It's not as warm as the crabs would like, but it keeps them warm enough for the fall weather. I'll need to get something else for them when it becomes colder.

Upset with product!

I plugged it in and barely got warm! And way to small for a 20 gallon hermit crab tank in witch is was recommended. I'm going to return it and try to find another heater!
