- - Best heater? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/freshwater-aquarium-equipment/best-heater-9546/)
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
Titanium heaters are the way to go. More accurate, less delicate, most are accurate/precise to ±1°F
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.
Is it the Via Aqua Titanium? I think the 100 watt will do it but maybe I need a 150?
I would go with 150W for your size of tank. :)
take my advice here, get one with a low-water cut off lol I blew up a heater in my toad tank last night doing a water change because my stupid self didnt unplug the heater first!
I agree with 150 watt.
Some good reviews and info here........
Thanks for the info everyone, yes I definitely want a cut-off when the heater is exposed to air!
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.
