i always ask that question even in my large tank. because when i started my tank up it was sitting at the right temp all the time. didnt think i needed heater at all. But i put one in just incase as i was worried about rises and declines in temp happening and the fish getting stressed. :?

In my nano, it got very cold during the winter months so I'll be using one again.
In addition, even without having a heater during the summer months can mean the temp flucuates a lot - not good for CRS.

Dennerle do a nano heater but it's not really "nano" as we know it. There's some flat heaters but they don't stay flat in the water, then there's the heating mats to put underneath but I've been told they stick to the underside of the aquarium.

I'm looking to get an in-line heater for my nano when finances allow.

Hi,

I use a newattio plus 10watt on my shrimp tanks sometimes BUT i find with the lights it actually tends to go from 25 up to 29 degrees during the day. Which wasnt good for my cherries.

Since i took it off the tank they are actually breeding like bunnies since it stays below 25 all the time.

I am slightly worried about the temp in winter thou since i live in scotland and my flat can get below 10 Deg C.

Aquael Easyheater or Aquael Neoheater ( both can be placed in any position ie. horizontally or vertically ).

It's ok i think i just found that out, the easy heater is still a mechanical heater & the neo's a newer version fully microprocessor controlled. Also the neo's cheaper at the mo.

Neowattino's are really small - I put mine into the HOB filter which worked really well and kept the equipment out of the tank. Be carefull which one you get though - the ordinary one is constantly on, but the Neowattino plus is pre-programmed to keep the temperature at 25 degrees celsius. Are you sure you'll need one? I dont use one at all in my 20l Arc tank - in fact, I have fans on a great deal of the time to keep the temperature down - the maximum temperature for CRS is 25 deg c. Mine only start breeding at 21 deg c.

I definitely need a heater my bedroom gets very gold in the winter, it's colder than any other room in the house? i'm planning to keep a betta fish in this tank so the temps will need to be on the warm side about 26c. I looked at the Neowattino plus heaters because they had the thermostat un-like the none + versions, but I think my tanks abit out of range for those heaters being 30 liter. Although by the time I add gravel & stuff maybe the Neowattino will be in range?
I have the wave box cubo 30 quite similar to the ark tanks. Thanks for the response
