  1. That's good to know. I bought a 50 watt Hydro Theo submersible heater today. It has a dial at the top with degrees written on it so I should be able to just set a temperature. I wasn't sure if the aquarium heater could keep it stable with cold nights and small tank, so it's encouraging to hear your tanks don't have any problems.

I was reading that fluctuations in the ambient room temperature could affect the aquarium's temperature, especially if it's a small aquarium, and that aquarium heaters might struggle to maintain an even temperature. If I need to keep it around 28 degrees inside the tank, in a small 20 litre tank, how well would an aquarium heater work at keeping the temperature stable, in a room that drops to 10 degrees many nights of the year?
