Title: Heater for mini tank
Post by: RummyNose on June 27, 2014, 09:36:05 PM
I'm thinking about seting up my tiny 1.6 gallon as a shrimp tank but I need a heater so I was wondering is there any heaters you guys would recommend

Hi Rummy,

Here's 2 that leap to mind:

Probably doesn't mean much, but my last heater has been a Hydor in-line.  If the little heater works as well as the in-line, it'd be one heck of an easy to care for workhorse.

Yeah I looked at those but I heard that they have a tendency to break after a few months and cook you fish

Put out a call to a planted nano forum to see what they might be able to offer
