Hydor Mini Heater "Review"

FYI:

I put a $14.00 Hydor mini-heater (7watts) in my 4 gal nano over the past couple days. It couldn't get the temp to rise beyond 2 degrees F. Since that still wasn't above 70deg F, I got a 25 watt and the tank is now a comfy 75 deg F.

The hydor is maybe for smaller tanks or warmer rooms!

If you read the back of the box, it says that the heater will successfully heat the water approximately 2 degrees above ambient room/water temperature.

I got one of these too, and it sort of sucks, but hey, it was cheap
