Re: How cold is too cold?
Thanks for all of your helpful responses. I think you've convinced me
to invest in some smaller heaters. As it stands, I tend to run smaller
heaters on my existing tanks - particularly planted tanks with lots of
I didn't realize that one could get heaters in sizes <50 watts, but my
local mail order outfit here in Canada has got 25W "Thermal compact"
heaters by Hagen (CAD 19.99) and Visi-therm (CAD 37.99 -- ouch). These
are the submersible type, which I prefer as you don't have to worry
about very large gaps in the tank cover. They even had one as small as
7.5 W, but it doesn't appear to be thermostatically controlled.
