If you liked the Cobalt Aquatics Neotherm but already have your own heating equipment, or you need a lot more power, then you are going to love the Neostat. Built from the same basic components as the Neotherm, the Neostat aquarium thermostat also from Cobalt includes fully electronic temperature control and a host of features to make it stand out.
The Cobalt Aquatics Neostat can control up to a 500 watt heating element, but it’s a one-way heater controller, and as of now cannot be used to control a chiller. The Neostat has a range of 66F to 96F with highly visible and intuitive indicator LEDs that let you know the set temperature and actual temperature, as well as allowing for programming with the push of a single button.
Even if you already have a decent heater having electronic temperature control from the Neostat adds an extra level of security should your heater’s built-in thermostat stick “on” and boil your livestocks. Cobalt Aquatics expects to have the Neostat price out about $115 and becoming available along with some larger size Neotherm heaters by the end of March.
