How do you adjust the temperature on this aquarium digital heater?
By Customer Service on December 21, 2011

Answer:
To set the temperature lower you must click the button on top to take the temp higher and then after 92 degrees it will start again at lowest temp of 67 and you can increment from there.

I trying to replace a 150 watt heater on a 20 gallon tank. I can get a 30 degree room change so I need the 150. They seem to make a 100 watt and 200 watt. Can a 100 watt be used and if needed a 50 watt? I know people do use two in a tank but these are generally of the same wattage. Anyone tried using two different watt heaters in the same tank? I really don't want to go to 200 as the 150 has worked well and has had no problem keeping up.

Answer:
Greetings Mark,

It is safe to assume hobbyist have heaters of different wattage in the same aquarium. It is very true hobbyist use two heaters in an aquarium as well. And there are a few good reasons for this.

Due to the potential 30 degree swing, as you mentioned, the D2HT-200 is well suited for your application. Unlike traditional heaters, the D2HT Series includes a separate temperature probe for a highly accurate reading. Traditional heaters read temp as they are heating and this is happening from the same source. In a 20 gallon aquarium like yours, there is a potential for overheating when using a traditional heater of higher wattage. The D2HT Series takes out the guess work by using a separate temperature probe. When your aquarium water reaches the target temperature, the D2HT Series heater powers down. For your application, a traditional heater may overshoot the target temperature subjecting your aquatic life to higher than normal temperatures, plus a dip in temperature after the heater has stabilized.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an additional email.

Awesome!
September 23, 2013
I am so pleased with this heater/thermometer. I able to rid of the separate external thermometer and there is no more trying to calibrate it to the heater. I have my heater set at 78 and it hasn't dropped below 77. I have the probe placed in the current before it hits the heater giving me a more accurate temperature reading. I have highly recommended this heater to my aquatic friends.
Pros:
No more trying to calibrate heater with a separate (external) thermometer. Large led digital displays
Cons:
I can't think of any.

Dual Digital Display
March 2, 2013
Nice heater, love the dual display. Very accurate. Never worry about the temp in the tank. Just a glance tells me the set and actual temperature. Only complaint is the first one only lasted 18 months, but they did offer a replacement at 1/2 price which I thought was very respectable. I would recommend this unit and would buy again.
Pros:
Safe, Good Value, Effective, Easy to Use
Cons:
Warranty, Life Expectancy
Best Uses:
Small Aquariums, Freshwater Tanks

Digital Dual Display heater
February 14, 2013
I really like these heaters. I can look at the tank and see the heater setting and water temperature at a glance. Keeps the tank at a consistent temperature without worry. The one and only thing I don't care for is that my heater failed after just 18 months. TruAqua was good enough to offer a 50% discount on a replacement even though it was well past the warranty period.
Pros:
Effective, Good Value, Nice Visual Display, Accurate, Easy to Use, Safe, Durable
Cons:
Short Life, Short warranty period
Best Uses:
Small Aquariums, Freshwater Tanks, Saltwater Tanks, Large Aquariums

Very satisfied
March 18, 2012
I use this product in my 25 gallon community tank. It keeps a constant temperature, with no fluctuations. I tested the digtal read out against an accurate thermometer, and it was spot on with accuracy. The only thing I would change, is, the instructions say to place the sensor on the opposite side of the tank, but the length of the sensor cord does not accommodate large aquariums.
Pros:
Easy to Use, Safe, Good Value, Durable, Effective
Best Uses:
Small Aquariums, Freshwater Tanks, Large Aquariums

Very Nice
January 6, 2012
Pretty sweet heater. It keeps my Tilapia Fry nice and toasty at exactly what it's set at...86 F. Only thing I don't like about it, is how bright the display and little light are. (Tank is in my bedroom) My room is pitch black and I can see the fish swimming around...from the other side of the room. Kind of a nice red ambience if you're one of the people who like dim night time lighting on their tank. Not for me though. Don't get me wrong, the display is really great during the day, but I wish you could dim it at night. Very accurate, compact, and feels pretty high quality. I would say it could hold its own against any other digital heater on the market (am I allowed to say that?)
Pros:
Digital, Good Value, Safe, Durable, Easy to Use, Effective
Cons:
Pretty Bright

Highly Recommend!
December 14, 2011
This item is fantastic; I thought, at first, it was a little pricey but considering that I would pay anything to make my environment comfortable it's not so bad. I feel that my fish tank is very safe and fish friendly; their activity suggests that they are very happy. I did make a water change recently and the temperature adjusted pretty quickly, impressive! Thank you for a great product

So far so good!

This aquarium heater works great. Very easy to install and there is just one button to make temperature setting. Simple for the technologically challenged like myself. The look is sleek and doesn't take away from the natural look of my aquariums. I have my temperature set at 80, it usually isn't 80 in my small 10 gallon tank, but remains at 79 or 81 and the heater turns on and off automatically as needed.
Pros:
Durable, Easy to Use, Safe, Effective, Good Value, Sleek
Best Uses:
Freshwater Tanks, Small Aquariums, Saltwater Tanks

Accurate Digital Temperature Control
December 9, 2011
Excellent product and quick overnight delivery. Tight temperature control range...much better than analog units. It would be helpful to offer a removable optional clear vinyl jacket to prevent breakage. My second unit broke easily in accidental contact with glass but I was able to order a replacement and have it within two days. Overall, I am very happy with these units and TruAqua service.
Pros:
Safe, Bright Display, Effective, Easy to Use, Good Value
Cons:
Breaks Easily
Best Uses:

Amazing Heater
November 15, 2011
I bought this heater for my 40G fresh water breeder tank. It has worked flawlessly for the past 3 months and I couldn't be happier!!! The last thing I wanted was a heater with a dial and other brands that offer digital read outs are very over priced. I'm so pleased with it's performance that I bought another one for my 10G Nano tank. That too has been up and running for just over 2 months and it's great. The 100w heater for both tanks is more than enough, plus the price was unbeatable. Don't question the heater when you see it and the price, just buy it, you'll see. Thanks TruAqua for an awesome product.
Pros:

AQUATOP Digital Heater

The D2HT Dual Digital Display Heater from AQUATOP

By David Lass, Aquarium Fish Int'l Magazine, December 2011





The new digital heater from Aquatop Aquatic Supplies includes a number of features and benefits; it is an excellent aquarium heater.

CLAIMS: Aquatop claims that the heater is easy to use and will maintain the aquarium temperature correctly.

TESTS: I tested a 300-Watt Aquatop Digital Heater on a 50-gallon planted tank. Over a few weeks, I raised the water temperature by 2 degrees every other day and then lowered it 2 degrees, going from 70 to 80 degrees Farenheit and back down.

RESULTS: The heater performed perfectly. I confirmed each adjustment with two thermometers in the tank. the display on the heater clearly shows the set temperature and the actual temperature. It is easy to turn the heater on and off, and to make temperature adjustments. The heater itself is well-made, with suction cups for mounting it to the glass. I especially like that it has integrated temperature probe that is mounted 6 inches or so from the heater, which I think is more accurate than relying on having the sensor within the heater itself.

CONCLUSION: The Aquatop Aquatic Supplies Digital Heater is an excellent piece of equipment, and I encourage hobbyists to use it. It is easy to use, accurate to within 1 degree, well-made and sturdy.
