    Zoo Med™ Betta Therm Mini Size Betta Bowl Heater is rated 1.6 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Tank Heater This is not a heater for your tank. This heater doesn't keep your tank at a constant temperature, it will just add heat until it is well over the threshold your tank should be at. Bettas need their water to be at a good 76-78 degrees, and this heater will heat your water to well over 85 degrees. Do not but this, spend the extra money to get a heater that is temperature adjustable or has a pre-set temp., otherwise your betta will fry.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product does not work. I used this in an 3 gallon tank. There was no measurable temperature difference and the fish circled around the heater. It only made the fish look miserable and made me waste some money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not give off enough heat This heater is small, compact, and inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. It seems to make no difference at all in my aquarium's water. I have a 2.5 gallon tank for my betta and I am temporarily keeping a lamp on over the water until I get a better heater.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from no good I got this to heat up my betta's fish bowl which is actually less than 1 gallon. In the end no good, it hardly produces any heat. For a second I thought it wasn't working but putting it to my hand I hardly felt any heat and what little it gave off was not distributing evenly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work well I have this in a gallon tank for my beta and the poor guy stays close to it since its not putting out enough heat. Its been checked, can feel its warm to the touch but pretty bad if the product doesn't work for a one gallon. it must mean its for a mini mini tank! This is also my second one to do the same thing.
    Date published: 2015-01-15
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never. Unless you've got the magic room that stays at a stable 70F and never, ever fluctuates, this is not the right product for heating. It's not certain of how much higher than room temperature it will go (so you'd have to figure out your product's tolerance through experience), and whether or not it's even stable is a guess at best. Do your fish a favor and put it in the right size tank. For a betta, go for three gallons at absolute minimum and get a programmable heater

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from One week is all I got. After a week of installing the heater I cleaned the tank. When I reinstalled, it didn't work anymore. I followed the directions to a T, but it just went out on me. It's easy as pie to use, but it died out way too fast. I wish I'd read this reviews before I purchased this product.
    Date published: 2011-11-24
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work well. I would advise buying a different heater. This one only raised my temperature 2 degrees and my poor fish stayed near the bottom of the tank right by the heater.

    Can I Use This In A 1/2 Gallon Tank

    Asked by: Redd19
    No. Please consider buying a larger tank for the sake of your fish's health. This could seriously harm your fish if you decide to put this in a .5 gallon tank.

    Hi, can i use this heater on beta bowls smaller than 1 gallon? Mine is filled with 10 cups of water and about two inches of gravel in the bottom, I also have plastic plants in there. Thanks,  Jessie

    Asked by: Jld_sail
    No. Just no. The wcater is too little, and this could boil your fish. Also, 10 cups is too little water for a beta. Pls, get at least a 1 gal tank. Your current amount is harmful to your poor fish.

    Will this work if you place it underneath the tank rather than inside the tank?
