I have a small 1.5 gallon Betta tank which I needed a heater for but most heaters are way too powerful for such a small tank. This heater is excellent - it only raises the temperature 5 to 10 degrees which is perfect for this size tank. So in the winter when my home temperature is 68 the heater will raise the temperature at a maximum 10 degress which brings the temperature to 78. You can also bury it under the gravel so it remains hidden. Would highly recommend this heater.

Great heater, easy to hide, very reasonable priced. If you have a small tank this is the way to go. I have a 1.5 gallon tank for my betta and its keeping temp at 76-78...he's happy as can be!

I have a 1.5 gallon fish bowl for my betta fish. The bowl is in my office which is always cold, at least 68 F degrees. I needed the lowest wattage I could find. This is the only flat heater I've seen and it runs both wet and dry. After reading the reviews, I took the advice of a couple of reviewers. I placed the heater on a porcelain dinner plate and put the fish bowl on top of the heater. The heater is between the plate and the bowl, it is not in the fish bowl. It brought the temperature of the water up by 6 degrees, so the bowl is regulated between 74 and 76 degrees. There is no way to tell if the heat pad is on, unless you check the heater itself and keep an eye on the fish bowl thermometer. I took the suggestion of another reviewer and added a cheap wall timer for the heater. I programmed it for 1 hour on and 1/2 hour off. I was uncomfortable having the heater run continuously, so the wall timer is working out well. It took a few days to make sure the heater and the wall timer were both doing their jobs, but so far almost three months later all is good. Hector the betta is happy he has a warmer bowl to swim around in. Good value and gets the job done for a small bowl.

Pros:
1) Inexpensive and stupid simple to install
2) Works well in 3 gallon volume of water

CONS:
1) "Always On": it does not have on/off when it hits a certain temperature thus it will keep raising temperature in a small volume of water. ***BECAUSE OF THIS YOU NEED TO MONITOR YOUR TEMPS CLOSELY, ESPECIALLY IN WARM ROOM and/or SUMMER!!!***
2) DO NOT recommend this heater for anything smaller than 3 gallons, see notes.
3) Even with gravel on top and lots of power cord slack, this heater has a tendency to want to "float" up to about the gravel line no matter how deep I put it under the gravel (have about 3/4 inch gravel on top).

BOTTOM LINE: Solid BUY if for 3-5gallons of water. If you are looking for a Betta tank heater for this volume of water, this is the one to get.

NOTES:
Bought this to initially heat a 1.5gallon tetra aquarium (see review) Tetra 29137 WaterWonders Aquarium Cube, 1.5 Gallons, Blackand it would raise the temp too high for Betta(upto 87F in a room that is about 75F). Moved the fish and this heater to 3gallon tetra tank Tetra Cube Aquarium Kit, 3-Gallon and temps ranged from 77-81F throughout the day. Not sure if that's too "wild" of a temperature sway in 24 hours but my Betta does not seem worse for wear or stressed. Will update this review if something changes.

This works great in my 5gal tank. Hides nice under the rocks. My betta seems really happy swimming around. We keep our house temp 73-75 year round and so far it's working great at keeping our little guy warm.

Stopped working. I went to change the water and realized it was totally just dead. It was plugged in correctly, worked one day and then nothing the next with no warning. Only had it for about four months.

Raised our 2.5 gallon tank around 8 degrees and does what its supposed to do so far. Betta is more curious than anything but hopefully she enjoys the warmer water.
