    I am getting frustrated with my heater. It can be adjusted, but I can't seem to get it where I need it to be and the dial is sensitive so I go to far either way. It is in a 20 gallon soon to be upgraded to a 29. Any ideas on a heater that can be set?

    None of my heat the water to what they are set for. One heats higher, one heats lower etc, etc. I have to sit there with a little needle nosed pliers and barely turn the knob, wait 2 hours, try again. Once I get it where I want it, it's stable. It's just a pain.

    If you want to spend a little I run a heater controller Finnex HC-810M and a heater that hooks to it.

    It is. I had it set and it seemed to stay for a couple of days and then it dropped 2 degrees. I waited and then moved it and it went up too high. UGH!

    Can you use any heater with this? One of the reviews made it seem like you could. Seems like a great idea, even if it was just for the warning in case something goes wrong.

    You have to buy a heater that plugs into it, many sizes available.

    Fluval E has a digital setting and an electronic thermostat. One of my favorite heaters.
