I needed a heater and fast for a 10 gallon. My only options were 2 cheap pet cetera ones (I had one malfunction and cook all my fish one night) Or my good stealth heater that is 100 watts. I have read that stealth heaters are good at holding the temperature. One online forum said that it would be ok. I just wanted to ask you guys though, I have the in the 10 gallon know should I be worried about over heating, or is the high price tag money well spent. Thanks in advance.

Money Well Spent. They are one of the better heaters to rely on.

NO Problem.

Candy,

Just remember that even though you bought a really high quality heater accidents still happen( rarely though).

Well he is just going to be in the tank till he is treated so it won't be to long. I was just concerned cause it is rated for a 20-30 gallon. Yah they are way more frequent with cheaper ones though. I have one in the 33 and I got it a year ago used, it is still doing good. Thanks again.

i dont think it would matter too much. from now till september, the heater will probably not even be coming on.

I would only have one concern ...temp. swing . Could be wrong but my thought is that by the time the heater realized the temp was 78 degrees and turned off the remaining Residual heat ( for lack of a better word ) still in the heater would cause the temp to still climb. Maybe a degree or so ( depending on size maybe, who knows ), thus the temp swing from min. to max. would be greater.
Could be blowing smoke :D...but just a thought...:D
Look at the bright side ....its getting nice out so you won't need one soon ....depending where it is.
