Re: [APD] Micro plant tank ideas?
That linker's a clinker for me. Do you have a direct
address rather than the tinyurl.com intermediary?
I have found this 7.5watt mini submersible heater. It is
supposedly preset but it doesn't say to what temp:
Hagen makes a mini submersible available at most of hte
online stores that handle Hagen/Tronic heaters, but it's a
whopping 25 watts -- whopping for tank that's only a couple
of gallons or less.
