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.

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.

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!
Okay, but for tiny tanks.

I bought this because the product is listed for tanks up to 20 gallons, which is exactly what I have. I got concerned when the installation picture was for a tiny plastic tank. As it turns out, this heater barely keeps my tank warm. It keeps the one spot directly against the glass warm but I still have to use an external heater to keep the tank properly warm. I will be buying a larger heater when winter comes around. It's also worth mentioning that the heater's stickiness started peeling away from the glass after a few days.
perfect for what I needed

My hermit crabs were a little inactive due to cold weather (I don't keep my house super warm in the winter). I purchased this heater and it's perfect! I placed it on the outside of their glass enclosure opposite from their water and they snuggle up to it nicely. I've noticed they have become more active again. The only small complaint I have is that the adhesive isn't super strong on the corners of the heater so the corners aren't up against the glass tight, but it's still very secure on the outside of the glass and I have no worries about it falling off. Also, even though I was concerned about a heater on the outside of the enclosure, it is just warm to the touch, not too hot.
Nit happy at all

This heater will not even keep the inside of a small terrarium over room temperature which was 66*F.
Small but it works!

This is just for a small container but it's great that it can be used on plastic. It's been chilly here still and my 2 new Madagascar hissing cockroaches, Creepy and Crawly, need to keep warm until summer. They snuggle down beside it or hang on the side I've got the heat pad on and just love it. I'm getting another for my garden snails as well. Their tank is larger but as they don't need it as warm it's no issue since for them it's just to take the chill off. And thanks to the folks at Chewy for helping us find this too!
