Check on-line, many vendors are having sales on heaters at the moment. I recommend something black like the Aqueon Pros that you can hide pretty easily, as mentioned already.
Actually, that's what mine is, Aqueon Pro. Works well... can't recall what I payed but I bought it on a boxing day sale. A 300W inline Hydor should come in under $60.
