    I'm trying that method now but it's not really doing much good. Then again it could be the heater itself, it goes on, it goes off. The temp is set at 90F but the water is usually 65F.
    This is the heater in a jar thing. Also the area is 4'L x 3'D by ~3'H might just be too big for one heater like that.
    The heater is for a big tank and it's in a pretty big glass vase.

    That's why I filled the whole bottom of the tank some. The whole bottom of warm water would heat more than a little jar of warm water.

    It's really the best way to go. A big jar is really, really ugly.

    Just another voice: I've toyed with the idea of using a submercible aquarium heater in a glass jar. Then add a pc fan to circulate. I actually used a heater for for a yogurt maker, whose heating element died. It looked odd but it also worked.
