To set, just choose the heat temp you want by pushing the button. It scrolls through your choices and once you come to the temp, just stop pushing. Shows current and set temps in red.

This is very compact, and just suctions on and starts maintaining the temperature. The heating element attaches to the side of the tank with a suction cup. Only complaint is i thought this model has a usb power capability, so i would not need an elect... Read More
I have a 3 gallon (pretty much the same as the marineland contour 3 gallon kit) desktop aquarium with a betta fish. This is the best nano tank heater i’ve found so far.

The water temperature is maintained within a degree of the preset temperature. It maintains the temperature within less than half adgree fahrenheit. However, it tops out at 75 degrees, so make sure it handles your desired temperature range.
My best guess is perhaps the heater leached something into the water. I think this reflects the temp at the sensor - inside the heating unit - and not that the entire tank is drifting up and down noticibly.
