I clicked the link, and was happy to see my order placed until I realized the shipping option I'd chose (the lowest one which was like $6), didn't select. Instead, my internet browser kindly chose the shipping option for me -- the highest and quickest shipping option available, ($13.67). Even with the highest shipping charge Reptile Direct offered, my total was still a bit less than any other company I'd checked with.
Surprisingly, their response -- which made my day --came before 24 hours had even passed.
Reptile Direct -- who actually made an effort to not only get back to me via Facebook, but also e-mail just to let me know they had already taken care of it -- was shipping the order still, and had already refunded me for the accidental shipping option!
Here are several photos I took of the Zoo Med Ceramic Heat Emitter I ordered from Reptile Direct:
As you'll notice on the box it came in, this heat emitter is appropriate for 30-40 gallon aquariums. I'd hoped to get a photo of Myrtle's aquarium so ya'll could get an idea of how large the aquarium is. Like I said, this 100 watt emitter really doesn't provide much heat at all for such a large tank (don't know the gallons of my tank, but it takes up the entire surface of a 6-drawer dresser, if that helps.)
For now, this one provides just enough warmth usually that the corner of the tank stays warm, but I know I'll have to buy another one, that'll heat up more of the tank since summer is ending. I'll just have to find out what model of a fixture I have so I can be sure that a higher wattage will go in without ruining the fixture or something.
For 30-40 gallon tanks, like the package advises this heat emitter for (it's also listed on the product description on Reptile Direct), it's going to work splendidly for heat. Any aquarium smaller than a 30 gallon and you might even have to give it a break to be sure it doesn't warm the water too much.
Here's an image of the emitter in its fixture:
Apologies for the blurry, low quality photos, but I was horrendously shaky as I took these. And the lighting there is horrible.
