  • Everything You Need To Know About Aquarium Heaters There are a lot of things to know about aquariums when setting one up. One of the most important elements of the aquarium set up is the aquarium heater. This is a small device that hangs on the side of aquarium and controls the warmth of the water. Different types of fish require different water temperatures. Therefore, it is vitally important that you set up your heater correctly so that your fish remain comfortable at all times.
  • Why Are Aquarium Heaters So Important? Every aquarium will need to have an aquarium heater. The reason is because most tropical fish are cold-blooded animals. This means that they are not able to control their body temperature and they depend on the heater to warm their body and keep them from freezing to death. Not all fish require the same temperature from the aquarium heater.
  • Buying fish Therefore, when you are buying your fish, you need to make sure you are buying fish that can live together in the same climate as your aquarium. Without an aquarium heater, your fish will die.
  • How Do I Know What Type Of Heater To Buy? It all depends on the size and type of your aquarium and the type of fish you plan on purchasing. There are three basic types of heaters available. There is the aquarium heater that simply hangs on the side of the tank. The hanging types of heaters are the most basic heating unit and are okay for use in smaller aquariums.
  • Type of aquarium heater There is also a submersible type of aquarium heater. This is the type of aquarium heater that is dropped into the water completely to heat and warm the aquarium. These are more convenient and more reliable that a heater that hangs on the side of the tank because it provides more consistent heat for the fish.
  • Heating cable system The heating cable system is also used and is commonly used in aquariums with live plants. This is the best aquarium heater because it provides continuous, even heat throughout the aquarium. It cost more money, but is a better heater than the other two types of aquarium heaters.
  • Aquarium heater An aquarium heater is one of the most important elements to add to an aquarium. Since your fish are probably cold blooded, they will need the heat to maintain a livable and comfortable body temperature. Without a heater, they will die. It is best to ask your local pet store representative which type of aquarium heater is best for your particular situation.
  • Tropical fish Most tropical fish require a minimum temperature of 84 degrees. So, the type of heater you will need will depend on your type of fish, the type of aquarium and the type of plants you have in your tank.
