Thanks!! Been wanting to get a mini heater but the one at AFA I felt was way to expensive, this one looks a lot more reasonable.

I have the up aqua 25w in my 3gallon.
It has performed decent and I am about to buy another one for my 2.6 gallon.

|devilduck||Love to see a picture of the white tank! You can probably cover the black cable with some white heat shrink tubing to make it less visible.|

Thanks for letting me know.
My problem is that i have the white tank, so any heater with black would not look to good against the white background.

I tried bending the cord to fit it horizontally yet it was too difficult since the cord was too rigid.
To me it just seemed like too much of a hassle so I just dealt with it being inside my tank. I do recommend the fluval edge heater if you decide on one, which looks stealthy on the backdrop of a black fluval edge. And just for reference, this is what the archaea heater looks like in my tank (although its in a saltwater tank)

|stella.k||hmm...can you put it in the section where the filter media are? I mean if you put it in upright? Yeah, looks like the cord is very thick. Would you be able to bend the cord enough so it goes down on one side outside of the filter?|

I decided to go with the Catalina 50w. I'm very happy with it so far.

I am going through the same process at the moment and was wondering if anyone has tried the Archaea heater.
Does it fit in the filter?

Anyone have experience with this Citii heater? It's a circular shape and only 3 inches round. Sold on ebay as well.

Not everybody will care, though.

|Icarus5||Thanks VJM. It looks like the Archaea heater is the only one that will fit in the HOB if I intend to do the same mod that Tuonor did. The Archaea is 1/2" longer than the one that Tuonor used...will it still work? Does anyone else have experience using the Archaea in this way?|

These 2 heaters are a bit flatter than normal and fit nicely into tight spaces. I have seen the second one but havent used it. The first on ( aqueon ) I use in my 2g spec. It keeps temp pretty warm ( sometimes too warm )
