Great heaters By Will on 12/4/13Will would recommend this product to a friendGreat heater, no glass to worry about breaking and no cheap temp controller that will burn out every year.
Great Heater By Christopher on 11/12/13Christopher would recommend this product to a friendI have been running the 500 watt for about 6 months now on my 75 reef. Great heater and no problems to report as of now. Quality product at a great price. The only down fall is it comes with no suction cups. Standard heater suction cups will work and can be had for a few bucks
Better Than Good - Amazing By Goodspies on 11/5/13Goodspies would recommend this product to a friendI recently put this heater in my sump on my 200 gallon tank and it is AMAZING. I keep our house very cool, especially at night, and this 800w heater has no problem keeping up. Plus, when I do water changes, it brings the tank temperature back up very quickly! Awesome product... just know that it is quite long so if you have a small sump that is divided in any way, take measurements beforehand.
Nice Product, good output By Slaty Reefer on 8/27/13Slaty Reefer would recommend this product to a friendI am using the 500W heating tube with my finnex controller and it ia working well so far. I am keeping a even low temp at night, my daytime temp increase due to MH lighting. Good review at this point, time will tell.
Good Heater By Robert on 7/28/13Robert would recommend this product to a friendI use 2 of these 800 watt units in my sump on my 245 gallon tank and it handles it with ease even in the winter. I use them with the Neptune Apex to control the temperature perfectly.
I have had no issues with these so far and my tank is 8 months old.
now i got 2 of them By Tim on 7/14/13Tim would recommend this product to a friendI have had the 500w heating my 225 gal folwlr tank for over a year. not a problem. just bought the 300w for my 50 gal reef i'm starting. Hoping for the same dependablity. You should know they need a controller, my D.A. RKE works great with it. Love you guys at BRS. Now get out of my state soi don't have to pay taxes. lol
Mixed Review By David on 5/13/13David wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have purcahed several of these in the last few years. Up until the last two, I would count them as reliable. The first lasted nearly 3 years between two systems. The last two have lasted less than 6 months combined. These would be awesome probes otherwise.
Luckily no major problems, though the first time around, it took me some time to track down the issues I was seeing in the tank as temp related. When I checked the controller log, there was a very wide temp swing overnight and 3 degree gap between optimal and high temp during the day.
Nearly KILLED me, FINNEX won't replace! By jeremy on 4/19/13jeremy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis item malfunctioned and released electricity into my sump within 2 weeks of use. It shocked me pretty bad. I tested it a few times to make sure it was the heater and I recreated it each time. I contact Finnex and mailed it in to them which cost me $18.
They refused to replace the heater because it tested "within spec" whatever that means. I am out $58 due to this AWFUL product.
DANGER --- DO NOT BUY FROM FINNEX!!!!
Well built By Brad on 4/2/13Brad would recommend this product to a friendIt's too early to tell on overall life, but the unit seems well built and works great with my RKL.
Works Well By RLDCPA on 3/31/13RLDCPA would recommend this product to a friendI originally bought another brand of heaters (2 300w heaters with a thermostat) but they were not enough for my 230 gallon tank. So I bought this Finnex 800 watt model and has worked great with my Neptune controller.
As these are fairly inexpensive as they have no thermostat in them, I bought another and put it in another compartment of my sump. I figure 2 will be safer if on ever fails. And the Neptune Apex logs your power usage so I will now exactly when it fails if it does.
If feel that using a controller is the way to go rather than a thermostat built in to the heater and cheaper in the end anyway.
works good for the price By Jimmy on 3/27/13Jimmy would recommend this product to a friendBeen using this for awhile, so far it's been very reliable.
So far so good By cdbstl76 on 3/14/13cdbstl76 would recommend this product to a friendI have this on my RKL running in the sump of a 100 gallon system, 75 main, 25 sump. My previous heater of a different brand was leaking current. This one isn't having any detectible excessive current leak. So, that alone make me happy. Over time, we will see how this unit works.

Since this heater requires a separate controller would it be a good option to use with an apex controller?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey James,
It would be a great option for use with an Apex or other aquarium controller, in fact its what I use with mine!
