Hi guys

I was in Melbourne yesterday and stopped of at an aquarium on the way home.

Had a good chat to the lady behined the counter, She asked if I had seen the new

heaters. They keep a small amount of water around 24c( can't be alterd).

The thing it's self is about 3cmx6cm, flat and black

Has anyone used them? are they the micro heater I have read about in the USA?

the cost is $29.95 not a cheap way to keep Bettas warm in a small space.

Can you used reptile heat pads to keep jars warm?

As lpiasente said, they have no thermostat.

They keep the water Xdegrees above room temperature, that X being dependant on the amount of water they are heating. Take a smallish jar and a hot day and you have betta soup. :) I'm not sure if you could attach a reptile thermostat to them, but that'd be an expensive proposition given that a 25w heater would work out at about 1/4 the cost.

Yes you can use some types of reptile mats, also some underwater lights (same problem, no thermostat) and I believe there are some that use modified waterbed heaters. There are quite a few options ;) It depends on your setup.

I was thinking at haveing a look at seed raising mats I haven't used one in years

I hope that they have improved? I don't think that the old types had a thermostats

have to have a look on the net.

today I got myself a second hand Betta Barracks that hold 36 fish, this will help

with fillter and 25w heater.

thanks for the help.
