Best Heater For 1.5g Tank?

mjolnir4321

I recently set up a 1.5g just for fun, and purchased a preset 25 watt heater on amazon for ~$12. I don’t have an extra temp strip, but its clear by feeling the water that its running too hot. When I put this heater in a 10g, the water temperature was fine.

Does anyone have recommendations for how/what heater to use for my 1.5g so it runs around 78 degrees? Thanks

I used the Tetra HT10 heater in a 1.5g tank and it worked fine to maintain the temperature. I also used it when the tank was half filled and it still worked.

7.5 watt hydor slI'm heater

zoomed 7.5 watt “betta bowl” heater

Just curious: what’s the tank for?

What's the room temp? What will be in it? Don't buy one if it makes no sense to.

Thanks, I’ll take a look at the 7.5 watt one!

I’m breeding blue carbon neocardinas, so I’m gonna use it as a cull tank

If anyone else has suggestions let me know!

Well, for Neocaridina, you don't even need a heater, especially for a cull tank. I'm assuming this is going to be indoors room temp.

I was gonna say that too. No heater needed.

Yeah they can thrive in a large temperature range, and the heater would only make things risky due to inevitable temperature fluctuations. It’s hard to heat a tank that small without cooking it, even with a weak heater
