This is a discussion on Fluval E heaters within the Beginner Freshwater Aquarium forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; -->
Haha. That's how it goes, another tank and another. I'm at that Big Al's once a week, usually. Vickie and Ryan are great fish ...
I wanted a double bright LED light but the price jump was HUGE from single, something like $70 to $265... I can't see them cutting something like that by 50%... those are probably a 20-30% item. The same thing (although one size larger) from PSC is $149.
I would like the flexibility of going with some plants that are not specifically low light.
I ran a thermometer in with the Fluval E, very astounded that the temp range was highly inaccurate.
Checked it 4 or 5 times before taking it out.
The temp ranged between 70f and 86f it was set for 76f
Needless to say they are both in the bin
Well, Al's is either HEAVILY discounting the LEDs or the guy showed me a larger or reef unit at $265... going up one size and double is now $120. Still 20% more than the pond guys though... I guess I'll hit the sale on Boxing Day and, if the combined parts price is close, buy it at Al's. If not or they are out of stock, order from the pond guys when I get home.
They won't have the heater that I am considering.
Oooooo.... they have a 40 gallon XH for $10 more than the 25H I got... It I turn the table the other way it would fit... I wonder if my wife would notice if the tank were bigger than the original.
"Oh, I don't know Dear. I THOUGHT it was only 24" long. I'm sure I can still make it fit...."
