    I have a small 8 gallon preformed pond that I'll be using for my CWD's new enclosure and will need a good water heater for it.

    I'd like to see what brand of heater you use for your pools. I've looked at these and so far and still haven't found one that I would feel comfortable with because of some negative reviews:

    TetraFauna Aquatic Reptile Heater

    Fluval M Submersible Heater

    EHEIM Jager Aquarium Thermostat Heater

    Marineland Visi-Therm Submersible - (I saw a recall for these, but can't remember the website for it)


    Rena Smart Heater

    Ideally, I'd like to get one that has an adjustable dial and fully submersible. Any suggestions would be great!

    I have a fluval in my turtle pond and a tetra fauna in my toad tank. I used to use the fluval in my CWDs cage but she didn't like it. She would kick it out of her pond so I half buried it and then she refused to go into her pond. So I took it out and let her water be at room temperature with one of her heat lamps kinda over it and now she dives in and out of her pond all day long.

    Is it the fluvial M?

    I had the tetra fauna years ago when we found a tiny red eared slider and it worked fine, but I saw so many negative reviews on it (maybe they don't make them as good as they used to?) that it scared me away from those.

    The ambient temperature might keep the water warm enough depending on your setup.
    I like Savs idea with the UTH. Keeps everything out of sight.
