Guide Review - Tetra Submersible Aquarium Heaters

The Whisper and HT model submersible heaters by Tetra are designed specifically for heating small aquariums of 2 to 30 gallons in size. Both models are durable and simple to operate, especially the HT units, because these have an electronic thermostat that automatically adjusts heat output to keep the water at a constant 78°F. All you have to do is put it in the aquarium and plug it in! If you need to heat a mini or nano reef tank, one of these Tetra heaters would be ideal.

Tetra Submersible Heater, Member Deefish787

I have only had this heater for 5 months and it's not working. My fish has been sick so I thought it was a disease... treating her for the disease but still not getting better. Went to change the water... it was freezing cold! The red light only comes on every so often. Not a good choice!
