A pet shop near me has some Red Sea Root Therm substrate heaters that have been sitting on the shelf for a long time, so he lowered the price on them. Are they worth resetting a tank to install, is this a good brand, are they still being made because when I tried to comparison them, they were generally on old webpages out of stock. His lowered price is good considering shipping if some of these other stores were not out of stock. One is for a 100 gallon tank, the other size for a 40, so if I did install them, should I use two of the larger size, or one large one small since that would be just under 150 gallons. He lowered the price of both sizes to the same figure, so there would be no cost difference, just concerned which would be the best configuration.

Here is a quote from the box.

Aquatic Plants will display healthy growth if they are provided with "warm roots" - i.e. the temperature within the substrate is slightly higher than that of the water above.

This temperature differential between the substrate and the water induces a gentle water circulation, which both prevents the formation of stagnant areas and the build up of undesirable by-products within the substrate while providing the roots with a constant supply of the nutrients necessary for optimum plant growth and vitality.


Do you consider these statements false or exaggerated? Don't mean to put you on the spot but I would like to know if these are another case of a fish product not accomplishing its claims.
