Hot! By Dan on 5/11/13Dan would recommend this product to a friendGood heater so far! Keeping the temp at 78F. Has an annoying alarm and you will most definitely know if something isn't right.
Consider if not using a controller By Starrme on 4/29/13Starrme would recommend this product to a friendOverall: Bought this as my first heater and have already replaced for my main tank. The digital display isn't a major benefit to me because I am using a controller. I will continue to use for heating my water change SW.
- Lights up when heating
- Digital temp setting and display
- Read out is on outside of tank
- Has separate temp measurement probe
- Makes a loud beeping noise when initially placed in cold water.
- Metal hooks to hold display too narrow for my sump rim
- Digital display is bulky
- Accurate to within 2 degrees
Note: If temp is significantly out of range, the heater will beep continuously. I thought my heater was broken when this first happened. The beeping is a warning mechanism for if the heater fails but is a major pain when using to heat up new ro/di water.
Easy Set Up Easy Read By Alexandria on 4/19/13Alexandria would recommend this product to a friendThis was super easy to set up and I like the digital read out. No more squinting on the old timey thermometers. Got the JBJ Digital thermometer with this. They are about 2 degrees off from each other. However, the JBJ digital thermometer is reading the same as the old timey thermometer so I trust the new digital thermometer and will set the heater 2 degrees up or down as needed.
Also impressed by how small it is. So in a small tank it's not this big honking thing that's getting in the way. If you have a small area for your heater this would be the way to go.
Will update as we go to see if there are any problems.
Ehhhh... By Michael on 4/10/13Michael would recommend this product to a friendBought two of these, one is still working flawlessly. Plugged in the second one the other day and it made an awful hissing sound like some sort of gas was escaping through the rubber ends and I noticed a weird smell. Not sure what happened, contacted finnex to see what they can do.
Great for the price By Travis on 4/1/13Travis would recommend this product to a friendThere seems to be a 2 degree difference between the thermostat and a separate external thermometer I use, but that is easy enough to adjust for. My only other complaint is having to reattach the suction cups to the wall every few weeks. With any sort of flow, they seem to lose their hold.
So far so good By Mascis on 3/30/13Mascis would recommend this product to a friendI don't have a controller, so these make it easy to check my temp on an ongoing basis. It's not glass, so there's no worry of explosions. And a small alarm sounds at a drastic temp change. like when the probe came out of the tank accidentally one day.
Mixed Review By Justin on 3/28/13Justin would recommend this product to a friendI have a couple of the larger units in my 57 gallon reef, and they do great at maintaining temperature. Unfortunately, after trying 2 different units, the small 50W unit is not large enough to maintain temperature in my nano tank. It will only raise the temperature by about 4 degrees in a 12 gallon tank.
The Best By Ryan on 3/21/13Ryan would recommend this product to a friendThis is by far the best heater I have purchased. I have had expensive heaters and cheap heaters, but this heater does it for me. It's easy to operate, the built in alarm for temps too high or too low is a life saver (literally for your fish) and it's not glass so I don't have to worry about it breaking in my tank or sump. I have one in each of my fish tanks and have gotten a few friends to buy them too!
Great Heaters By Gary on 3/19/13Gary would recommend this product to a friendI have both a 150w and 100w. Both have been working great for 6 months now. I have been using a temp probe and they are as accurate as the claim. The built in remote temp sensor cord could be longer.
Love the digital control By Ray on 3/15/13Ray would recommend this product to a friendI have this in my 29 BioCube and it works great. I love the easy to read digital control. It's easy to tell if the heater is on or off and what temp the tank is at. I'm going to get another one for my water changes.
Sharp By Todd on 3/5/13Todd would recommend this product to a friendI haven't used mine yet, but beats the glass heaters.
Awesome heater By Devin on 3/2/13Devin would recommend this product to a friendTitanium heater that is easy to setup with a nice digital read out & controller that sits outside of the tank. Worried about reading your heater correctly? Not a problem with this heater, which also doubles as a temperature gauge. I have 2 x 200 watt in my 75 gallon + 30 gallon sump and they work perfectly.

How many and what wattage do I need for a 180 gallon reef tank? My home is set at 70 degrees year round and I would like to keep the tank around 78 degrees.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Charles,
For a tank that size your looking for roughly 600w of heating ability. With these heaters I would suggest picking up two of the 300w heaters.
