Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5★áby 77reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5★áby Proper prep not in instructions! Like a few reviewers, I've had issues with this heater. I came back to read the reviews and I realized that in the directions nowhere does it say you should let the heater acclimate to the water before turning it on. I unplugged it for 30 minutes (while submerged in water of course) then plugged it back in, and within an hour the water in my 10 gallon tank was reading 76*. So if you have this problem try unplugging it and letting it sit for a bit before turning it back on. 01/27/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★áby Frustrated! I purchased this heater through Walmart 2xs. The first one lasted two days. The second one lasted one day. The directions say "submerge in water, then plug in." That's what I did. The box and directions both say that the heater will maintain the tank temperture at 78 degrees. The first heater I had brought the water temp to 74 and the second made it to 70. Now my fish are cold once again.On the plus side, I really like the overall appearance of this heater. It is small and blends into the background (that would be why I purchased it the second time).If you buy this item, I hope you have better luck! (Oh, my tank is 10 gallons. So, if you have a smaller tank, maybe it will work better.) 01/25/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★áby Awsome This product does his job quite well. It maintains well it's temperature watever is your room temperature. It is great in that way. The only negative of it is that you can't control the temperature and you need to put it at at least 30 degree celcius to cure some illness (for fishes). So i had to buy an other heater to cure my fishes. But that heater maintains way more the temperature than the one i can contorl it though, which is why i still keep it and use it =] 03/17/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★áby The best Betta heater ever! My Betta has never been happier since getting this heater! Someone said that the directions were not proper and that the heater needs to be acclimated to the water? That's not true. Think about it: It's not in the instructions because it's not necessary!! Just put the heater in the tank wherever you want it, plug it in, and it works. It keeps the water perfectly warm for my Betta. 03/20/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Tetra Heater for Aquarium 5-15 gallon I got the heater and installed it. I love it. It is perfect for the aquarium and for the price, it can't be beat. You can install it either upright or horizontally in the tank. it is small enough that you can't see it. It is not in the way at all and keeps a perfect 78 degrees Temp for my beta fish. Bubbles is very happy! 07/14/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★áby Not that great... I have a ten gallon tank, and the heater keeps it at about 72 degrees, when it should be 78. I am very disappointed. The little red light that indicates it is heating turns off all the time when it hasn't even reached it's specified temperature. I am planning on investing in a better heater. 01/28/2010
Rated 3 out of 5★áby Doesn't seem to be keeping the temperature at 78 I bought this heater for my 2 gallon tank. It's supposed to keep the tank at 78 degrees but the tank has stayed at a pretty constant 76. This heater is recommended for tanks 2 through, I believe, 15 gallons so I'm surprised it isn't keeping the right temperature on such a small tank. The onlly thing I can think of is the thermometer I'm using is one that is placed on the outside of the tank so perhaps it just isn't giving an accurate reading. 12/31/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★áby Keeps a steady 76... on my out-of-the-tank sticker-thermometer.There's not much more I need to add that would differ from the previous reviewers thoughts. It's a great little heater for my 5 gallon tank that only has one tropical fish in it. And the fish is happy. I don't think you can go wrong with this heater. It has a suction cup that sticks quite well to the acrylic tank and hasn't moved since I installed it approximately 3 months ago. I do think it should've been less than ten dollars, but it was just under 15 in the store. 11/21/2008
