Need help finding a heater


I am needing a heater that I can set to 95f.
I have a sick discus and I need to treat him with some meds that need to be at 95f for it to work best.

I am currently running a fluval and the max temp is 88f.

Does anyone know of a heater that is available at one of the big box guys that will get to 95F.

thanks

I don't get off work until 11pm, but I know that my eheim jager heater goes into the 90's just can't remember off the top of my head if 93 or 95 is the highest setting. Since you can calibrate it, it may be possible to push the temp by a few more degrees by recalibrating it.

If you could let me know what model the Jager is that would be nice to know.

The one I have in my tank is the 150 watt one if that helps. I had gotten it from big als about a month ago.

The new Cobalt Neo-therm goes to 96 degrees. I just got a couple and like them a lot so far.
