RayT 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.

golfer_d The Hagen Elite's are not preset...they have a dial at the top to increase or decrease the heat.

How do you adjust it if it is preset?

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.
Would you be using this for breeding purposes? I am going to be breeding Betta pair in this tank.

Yeah I saw the Hydors around the net,it looks pretty good for the cost. Amazon is great about replacement or if someone messes you over too. I like dealing with them.

TopFin is hit or miss in terms of quality
So it stays at the temp all the time without any adjustments by the user?
