"So far so good."

This is a great heater that is very easy to set up and program. If the water runs low or air gets in the heater shuts off. This heater warmed it right up and now my Betta and guppies are more active. I dont know, and havent tried just yet. I'm not a big fan of the big glass tubes. And I get to keep the first one I bought! I got this heater for my 55 gallon aquarium.

"I like this heater."

Now, both points are clear on the package instructions. We received the chiller promptly and put it into use. Well I bought a second one took me only one trying to get the right temperature. The cover over the heating tubes is great, the turtles claws can't damage the tube. I use a 50 for a 5 gal and a 10 gal tank. My marina heater takes a few hours. I have a few of these and I use them in my 55 gallons tanks and a 29 gallon tank.

PULACO PL-168 Final Thoughts

"I would call that a win."

It took me a few days slowly turning the dial up to finally get it where I wanted. I have it set to 81F to get a 77F water temp. Checked the accuracy of the heater with an infrared thermometer. You program it for temperature you want your tank to be. Temperature is slightly off by running a little warmer. The heater is easy; turn the dial to set temp and plug in. The suction cups are large, high quality and seem to stick great.

Marina 11230 First Impressions

"Best value."

We wish the controls were available in Farenheit also to make things a little easier. It would stick out of my 30 g wide tank if I were to put it vertical. There is a misconception on the internet that the heater isn't fully submersible. No biggie, but annoying nonetheless. I would definitely recommend this product. Sometimes it gets outside of it's ability to cool but only within a few degrees. It's pretty noticeable, but I don't really care.

The red light means it's off, blue light means the temperature is constant. We wish the controls were available in Farenheit also to make things a little easier. The temperature gauge is fairly accurate in my 55 gallon tank. I am very happy with this purchase. We wish the controls were available in Farenheit also to make things a little easier. --The cylinder or rod diameter is bigger. This is a great heater that is very easy to set up and program.

"Love this heater!"

It is safe and dependable and comes with a one year warranty. I was worried about the quality but I am thoroughly impressed with this heater! I dont know, and havent tried just yet. We wish the controls were available in Farenheit also to make things a little easier. Beware, but we are hoping for a good outcome! I dont know, and havent tried just yet. Come on Fluval, expect better from you.

  • UPMCT Aquarium Heater, 50W 100W 300W Submersible Fish Tank Heater with Thermometer Strip Adjust Knob Thermostat, Suitable for 5 to 85 Gallons
  • 【Quality Assurance】High-purity thick quartz explosion-proof crystal tube is used on the surface, there will be no rust spots, causing heavy metal damage to the fish. The double sealing waterproof can also prevent electric leakage, the fish will not be electrocuted due to leakage of the product. A heating guard with a high suction cup is provided as a gift, and the fish will not be burnt due to the fish touching the aquarium heater. Keep your fish live in a carefree warmth at any time!
  • 【Wide Range Of Temperature Adjustment】Bimetallic material, precise temperature control. Adjustable temperature ranges from 68°F to 94°F(20°C - 34°C), and you can choose the coziest temperature for your fish. (The suitable temperature range for most tropical fish is 76°F to 80°F/24°C -27°C ). At the same time, a temperature sticker is attached to the fish tank, allowing you to intuitively detect temperature changes at any time, so that you can use it with more confidence.
  • 【Suitable For 5-85 Gallon Tanks】50W aquarium heater is suitable for a 5 to 15 gallon tank, 100W aquarium heater is suitable for a 15 to 25 gallon tank. 300W aquarium heater is suitable for a 50 to 85 gallon tank. It is suitable for fresh water and sea water! Please confirm the wattage, tank capacity and other details before purchasing to select the aquarium heater with appropriate wattage.
  • 【Easy To Install】Can be installed vertically or horizontally, but the aquarium heater must be completely submerged in water. We also recommend placing it near a strong water flow, where the outlet of the mains filter is ideal, so that the temperature of the entire aquarium is the same.
  • 【How To Use】Immerse the aquarium heater completely into the aquarium or tank, wait for 10-15 minutes to let the internal temperature adapt to the actual water temperature in the tank. Then twist the thermostat knob, adjust the temperature to 68°-94°F and then connect to the power supply.

"No issues."

All seem to vary between 1-2 degrees of each other which doesn't concern me much. The temperature gauge is fairly accurate in my 55 gallon tank. I would definitely recommend this product. The red light means it's off, blue light means the temperature is constant. I got a hold of Amazon, who put me in touch with the seller. Ick for instance detaches from fish at 86 degrees and dies at 89. No biggie, but annoying nonetheless.

"Not very reasonable."

I like the fact that it comes with a digital thermometer. 210 gallon ones and one 90 gallon bow front tank. What more could you ask for great job Hygger Duncan. This heater warmed it right up and now my Betta and guppies are more active. The temperature lights up so it's very easy to read. Maintains it well except when the weather is already warm then it over heats it. The bonus digital thermometer it came with has been super helpful, and is accurate.
