Hello..i've got a 50w heater on my 40ltrs aquarium and the last few days the water can't reach the appropriate temperature (25-26 Celsius). I don't have central heater in my home so in the last few days it's really cold inside. I don't know if this causes the heater's problem.I decided to control the heater's temperature( 29 celsius in the morning and 31 at night). Now my aquarium has 26 Celsius. Is it normal for the cold winter'd days? Can you help me pls!! :unsure:
Thanks!!

It depends on your room temperature but if you don't reach your wished temp your heater is to weak or maybe defect.

That's about a 10gallon tank. I've had 50watt heaters in 10g tanks raise the water temp maybe 15degF above room temperature. IMO, it would be unlikely to get more out of it that that.
75g a tiger oscar and a green severum
55g community tank with plants
55g goldfish tank
29g community tank with plants

It also depend on the quality. The cheapo 50 Watt no name heaters on this plug and play Mini combinations with tank, lid, light, filter, heater are also not that good at all. This don't mean that they don't work but of course they are not that good while a regular heater cost around 20 to 35 bucks as stand alone and at the other side you get a whole 15G Kit for 60 bucks. (Example on Euro prices)
