I purchased the 10-20 gallon size for my 10 gallon hermit crab tank. I stuck it on the side of the tank (which the description and instructions say is okay). It barely heats up at all! It just feels slightly warm. There is no way that this product could heat up a 20 gallon tank, it couldn't raise the temperature of my 10 gallon by one degree! I am very disappointed in this product and I will only be using lighting to heat my tank in the future. This heat mat does not do anything to help my hermit crabs and seems to have been a complete waste of my money.
Cons: descriptions are deceiving, recommended tank sizes are inaccurate, does not heat tank, expensive, useless
