Would work to bring the temp up to a degree, but you might as well use a conventional heater.

They are for reptiles if it under tank Id make sure the tank is raised as they can cause a fire hazzard.I have one for my hermit crabs but I keep it on the side of the tank. Pat

I just had an idea. As pat said, it could become a fire hazzard, and I agree, it could be. But if I use it on claude's tank, I could put it on the side by the wall. that way it would be warming the water by the filter in and spillyway and flow over the tank. that way I can monitor it easily, and remove it if it fails. That sound workable?

It should be fine on the side as long as air can flow around it. Make sure you keep an eye on your tank temp and it should work fine.

Mmmm. Boiled shrimp. With some horseradish sauce and a nice glass of chardenay. A hard cheese would be nice too and some fresh calabresi (sp?) bread.

Great, now I'm hungry.

Another problem is that they get REALLY hot, so if you have fish or anything that may land on it, they can get some serious burns.
