Thank you so much, I will look into this more and hopefully they fit into the fluval 5 gallon tankGorkem said:Hi,
My suggestion for you;
Thank you, I will definitely check that out.Islandvic said:When we had our little 5.5 gallon tank set up, I found a 50w Aqueon adjustable heater on sale for $14. It worked perfect.
A "larger" heater won't heat up the tank too much, because it's still controlled by the thermostat.
Aqueons have good warranties also.
Thank you!TWiG87 said:I vote Aqueon or an EheI'm Jager. Both nice heaters
Good to know. Thank you vmjasmine-smith said:I don't like preset heaters because if I don't monitor mine the water goes up to like 82 or 83. I got a 20 dollar preset heater off of amazon though and an adjustable Marineland one off of Chewy. Tip for Chewy: visit the site and wait a few days. I get ads afterwards that offer the heaters for like a few dollars cheaper.
Hello! Aquarium Co-op has a 50Watt heater that they sell, but I don't know if they still ship right now due to the pandemic.Bettaeverything said:
Will do. I heard Aqueon is good brand and I will make sure to get at least 50 watts. thank you.Dewclaw83 said:Aqueon is my favorite, but DON’T get anything smaller than their 50W. Their “5 gallon” ones and smaller will stop working after the first time you unplug them. I’ve tried them so many times and it happens every time.

Aqueon 50W adjustable (Nice in case you ever want to change the temp, but a couple dollars more):

Checking it out now, thanks for the tip!Gel0city said:Hello! Aquarium Co-op has a 50Watt heater that they sell, but I don't know if they still ship right now due to the pandemic.
Thank you!tum0r said:I have found that most heaters designed for 10 gallon or under tend to run slightly colder than 78 degrees even though they're preset to that temperature. Honestly, most are cheaply made and don't last in the longterm (5+ years). EheI'm is my brand of choice for heaters, but I don't believe they have heaters for anything under 25 gallon (correct me if I am mistaken), so I've been using Aqueon for my 5 gallon instead and I can't really complain.
Thanks for the recommendationDuaneV said:For a 5 gallon tank, the Aqueon Pro Adjustable 50 watt and set it to 81/82 for your Betta. It will keep his metabolism up, you won't have digestion issues and he'll be more active.
