Fluval or Aqueon heater?

1083 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DaveK
My 7 gallon need a heater now that summer is over. I went to my LFS to check them out. Turns out they are having a sale... The aqueons are $8 and the fluvals are $15... since they are so cheap I was wondering which ones you would go with...
BTW its a standard heater... Basically just on off...

I think ether of them would work fine, and your getting a good price on it.

IMO the big trick with heaters is don't oversize them. 2 - 3 watts per gal is plenty. Heaters do fail in the on position, and a huge heater, even though the price is the same, will cook your fish much faster.
