If you live in a Northern state in the United States or you live in an area that has harsh winters, keeping an aquarium can be quite challenging in such climates. Certain species of fish are very sensitive to low temperatures and many tropical fish
cannot withstand the cold temperatures at all. That is why in addition to investing in a thermostat, you should look into a water heater system for your aquarium. This can mean the difference between healthy fish or stressed out fish because the water temperature can really stress fish out. High fish stress can lead to susceptibility to parasites or diseases.
An excellent water heater for aquariums is the Jager 75 W Heater 10 Inch UL Approved from Pet Store
. This heater comes with a thermostat and you can adjust the temperature in a range from 64 to 94 degrees Fahrenheit. It is made from shock-resistant heavy duty glass construction and it works great for both salt water and fresh water aquariums. This unit is very stable and designed for long-term use.
It comes with one-year warranty from the manufacturer and each unit comes with 6 feet of power cord that is double insulated. If you are looking to keep your fish comfortable in a nice livable range, try the Jager 75 W Heater 10 Inch UL Approved. Keep in mind that the wattage you need for the heater is determined by how many gallons your tank has.
