    Heaters?

    With fall coming a few weeks away, I should probably starting thinking about heaters for my aquarium. I've never had one before - at our old place we kept the temp pretty toasty in the winter and the tanks would stay at a reasonable temp. But in this old house we don't raise the thermostat much over 70 in the winter. So ... what wattage for a 29 gal tank? Do you use a submersible or regular heater? Where the best place in the tank to place it?

    I PERSONALLY LIKE THE STEALTH HEATERS

    i put them on an angle towards the bottom of the tank and i only use 1 per tank i just get the next size up for what the tank calls for
    alot of people use 2 small heaters for fear of one sticking and cooking the fish <i have never had that problem>
    i suggest a 200 watt heater for a 29 gal so you dont work it so hard

    That's what I use also.

    I think 200watts is overkill for a 29 gallon tank. In my 20 gallon I only have a 100watt.

    In my 38 gal I use to have I used a 150 watt. In my 20 Long I use a 100 watt. My 10 gal I use a 50 watt and my 5 gal I use a 25 watt. I like the Visa Therm heaters the best and also the Tritonics all submersable heaters and I place mine in the 2/3rd down from the top on the back of the tank.
