I use the cheapos....all glass and whisper
My tanks are in slightly different conditions but I've noticed if I keep the all glass about 5 degrees lower thank it says it's keep the temp stable. The whisper 40 hasen't been a problem for me, but I bought it just for my 29 gallon tank. The all-glass came with it but was the wrong size for that tank...don't ask, I don't know. My whisper 10 is fine in one tank, but fluctuates in the other 10 gallon....anyway, I keep it around as an emergency spare. I haven't had any heat related fatalities yet, but don't want to unnecessary upgrade the heaters. I have to monitor the temp by checking it in the morning and evening before/after work. Everyone has their own opinions about this but it would be nice to not have to keep such a close watch on the temperature, can that be done?
