Aquarium Coop heater


Recommended Posts

About 10 years ago, I used to heat a 125 gallon with a 300 watt Eihem Jager heater. Great heater but it wasn’t subtle, it is tremendous. Fast forward 10 years, I now live in Florida. The past couple of weeks have been lows in the 30’s-50’s at night. I decided to place a heater in my 300 gallon stock tank. I ordered 2 coop 100 watt heaters. Without the heaters, the water dropped to 59 at one point. With the heaters, I am easily keeping a steady 75 with no issues. I am stunned at how much we can overdo it because it was written somewhere. Bravo @Cory and the coop team. I’m impressed. 
I forgot to mention, this is an outdoor stock tank.

My tank is way smaller, only 75g, but I keep it at 76 degrees with no problem with only one of the coop 100w heaters. I keep my house at 68 most of the time. I like it chilly. I totally agree with you on the over doing it. I used to believe I needed a much larger heater, now I'm thinking I probably could have got away a 50w instead. 

You have a beautiful set up.
