That's what I'm finding. I know they make products call rheostats (spelling?) that basically turn the fixture off and on if it falls outside of the range you want. But if I'd go that route, I'd just assume pay for a normal heater lol.

Heat mat instead of in-tank heater?

I was wondering if I could use a retile heat mat on a small tank (6 gallons) and have it attached to the outside bottom of the tank? Or will this not provide adequate heat in the water?
