I've only had this heater a little over a month, but its been very reliable. Keeps tank just at the temp I want (78-80) for my betta, cories and cherry shrimp. If the room temp gets too low, however, the tank will drop 2-3 degrees, so I try to keep the room at a fairly consistent temp. At night, I keep the house quite a bit cooler, so I might turn the knob just a tiny bit to offset this temp drop. Same thing if the room gets too warm. The tank will also warm up. Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the heater doesn't automatically keep a steady temp despite ambient room temperature. But its pretty close, still. Start at the lowest setting, watch the temp with a thermometer, and turn it up in very small increments(clockwise) until you reach the temp you want to keep it at. Takes a couple of days, but you'll find the setting you want pretty quickly. Since I've only had it a short time, I don't know yet about durability, but so far I am impressed, and don't have to worry about my fish getting too cold or hot.

I have this heater for my 5 gallon Fluval Spec V that needs to stay in the 80F range for my Betta. Because the Fluval Spec is designed so that you put the heater inside the filter compartment, you have to overset this to get the entire tank (and not just the filter compartmet) to 80F. But I was able to do that very easily and the temperature is stable. This is a great alternative to the popular Hydor 50W Submersible Aquarium Heater - Original Theo that in my experience is much less reliable and the Finnex 50-Watt Hang-On Digital Controller Aquarium Heater, Titanium Tube, 10 to 20-Gallon which is awesome but three times more expensive.

I just wish the heater was a bit smaller like the Hydor!

This heater arrived on time and does exactly what it is supposed to. It heats the tank consistently, and is pretty accurate. I have had no problems keeping my 5 gallon beta tank at 79 or 80 degrees. My beta loves it! He even likes to sleep on top of it. Get a $2.00 thermometer at your lfs to check it and adjust it for a couple of days, then you can just leave it. Really good deal! You can't beat the quality for the price! Thanks to the other reviewers who helped me make this choice! I knocked it down to 4 stars only because there is no digital display. 5 stars otherwise. You know what, let's go ahead and go with the 5. The price is amazing!

I have this heater in my ten gallon aquarium and it's been a great addition.
1. Super easy to install
2. Instructions are easy to follow
3. This heater clicks on when the temperature in my fish tank gets below 78 degrees.
4. Has an easy dial to use.
5. Comes with suction cups to attach it to the side of your aquarium

A little bit of an eye sore but my fish love it and it keeps the temperature where I need it. Would recommend.

I use this for an incubator and it's very easy to use and seems to maintain the temperature at a steady 80 degrees.

Product came cracked but was replaced by amazon. Its good to remember the numbers on the heater itself don't mean much, you will need a separate temperature gauge to slowly calibrate the device to maintain the temperature you desire. From that point, its just set and forget!
