I was not saying you were one of the whiners. I was just pointing out the fact that everyone can be biased by what they own...
I did some research before landing on Ebo land. All I read was good. So now I have two Ebos (250W). They are very new. In fact, I just put one in my 55 about two weeks ago. The temp hovers right on the dot.
I am not gonna lie to you, but it may drop one or two degrees at night *especially.* Now, don't jump to say they suck. There are too many variables to put into the equation as to why it drops. My 55 is made of glass like almost everyone else's tank. Glass is a poor insulator.
I can tell you from experience that in the summer I drop the settings on all my tanks after increasing the temp every winter. At night, the lights are off. No lights, no extra heat. I am the anal type, but when it comes to one or two degrees…Let it rip! Is my motto. I would not be too concerned if I were breeding something that requires close supervision like fertilizing an ovum via IVF.
Give them a try. If you do not like it, send it back.
