I have used the Hydor THEO for the past 2 years without issue. It was very reliable and kept the tank true to the temp selected. Just recently it seems some moisture has gotten inside the glass and it seems to be affecting its ability to know when to shut off.
In replacement I have just purchased EHEIM Jager heater which should be delivered today. It looks promising and I know Eheim is a great brand.

How do you adjust it if it is preset?

|Basil||I do not have a personal experience with that heater but it has been recommended many time for its adjustabity. It may say preset but you can adjust it. I have used hydor heaters and preset Marina heaters in my tanks with great success.|

Marina makes a decent one that heats the water ~7 degrees above ambient temp.
TopFin is hit or miss in terms of quality

I use 25 watt hydor heaters in my 2.5g and they been going for year plus and they are small about 6" long?
But I did get one that was broken from the start but amazon refunded me.

I have no good experience with heaters I like in this size, unfortunately. I actually just went without a heater for the last few years on my nano's.
However, there is a Fluval heater that I am interested in trying. 25 watts. Google "Fluval Edge 25 watt heater". They aren't pricey, the are compact, and they attractive enough. They are preset however to 78 degrees so non adjustable. I plan on trying one when I have a few extra dollars.
