Undergravel heating cables

Recommended Posts

Looking up info about heating cables because I'm considering going all in with cables in my eight foot. Obviously many people think they are a waste of money, but looking online I found this http://aquaticconcepts.thekrib.com/Articles/PAM_Substrate.htm

Interesting read. Where the eight foot is going stays generally cool enough to warrant it, plus I don't plan on keeping discus, so I may get away with the internal tank heaters being 24° or so ... Still researching, but would be nice to hear opinions, especially from people who have used them before.

Am considering getting one to use on half the tank,and see if there is any difference

I've heard of them being used on specialist (I guess that is the word) planted fish tanks but have never tried them myself. For a dirted tank where speeding up the reactions in the soil could be useful I can see the benefit but have never tried it (sounds expensive!?).

I do wonder on the old ugf. Plants did grow well but maybe I just hit a balance.
