I am looking for a really good heater for my 30 gallon community. My appartment heat fluctuates slightly and I want the heater to maintain a steady temperature. This is the most important element of the heater for me, price is not really a concern I am just looking for the best heaters available
I like Visa-Therm either the Deluxe or the Stealth. The Stealth is unbreakable with a low water cut off, but it doesn't have an indicator light. The Deluxe is glass with an indicator, but no low water cut off. I prefer the Stealth. Both are accurate within 1 degree.
Visotherm or The titanium heater for sure. As far as it having a shut off, there is always the option of laying the heater on its side well below the level of a water change so you never have to worry about it or even just above the substrate.
If you are using a cnaister filter, get an inline heater. Would be just as accurate and you don't have to worry about it cluttering the tank at all nor having a shut off.
