This heater sat on my seahorse tank for one whole year. I keep my tank at a low temp, so it never turned on, but I kept it on there just in case my tank happened to get under 72 degrees one day. One day I took it out and put it inside of a smaller tank to test to make sure it was working. After acclimating it and turning it on, much to my surprise, I dipped my hand in the warm water only to be electrocuted. Thank god this terrible item never turned on inside of my seahorse tank, otherwise I'd have some floating fish. Don't get this heater.

I bought the 300, and Im happy with it so far. It does have an LED controller which is nice. It has been keeping my temp where I want it. I wish they had a bigger heater since my tank is a 120 gallon not including the sump. But this seems to be doing the job.
Quality issues By KC on 11/10/2012

This heater may look nice but there are serious quality flaws within. I had ordered this and the first one was defective. The second replacement only lasted one year and won't heat anymore. This heater works great when it does but you just don't know how quickly it goes...

Great combination with prob and digital controller.
Using for my mix tank and its perfect
Super accurate and the digital readout is much nicer than the old dial-set heaters. By Zak on 9/13/2012

I bought the 150w version for my 40 breeder and it's been working perfectly thus far. Love the digital readout, made me feel much more confident when setting my temperature in comparison to the dial-set heaters I've used in the past where you just sort of guess and check.

Purchased this heater for my reef tank and keeps my temps very stable....I especially like the easy to read LED heating indicator. Very easy to tell when the heater is on or off and easy to set desired temperature!

I have had the heater for 6 months. Woke up this morning and my temp was running 89 degrees. The heater is set on 78 degrees. Worst part is that the light showing that the heater is heating the tank is OFF!

What is an acceptable failure rate for a heater? Especially when the failure is water getting into the heater's electronics and creating an electric current in your tank? Is 1 per 100 acceptable risk? Unbelievable! I bought two of these 6 days ago to cook dry rock and came home this evening to check on the tub, put my hand in the water and was shocked. Water was in teh electronics. This heater had nothing done to it than taken out of the box, put directly into the water, appropriately hung and did not move until this happened. BEWARE!!! lucky I didn't use this unit in my tank and only to cook rock. Will NEVER Use this product when there is anything to risk.
Compact heater By Kerric on 4/2/2012

I use one of these hooked up to my Apex Jr. controller. The controller turns the heater on and off (I keep the heater temp controller turned all the way up) and it works well. Before I had the reef controller connected however the heaters controller was in use and worked well but that was only for about a month. This heater (the 100w model) is VERY compact and sits in the return chamber of my sump. I am pleased with it so far.
Nice product wish; Wish the cords were on 1 end By PT on 3/10/2012

I was looking for a short heater as I did not have much space in terms of length and this fit the need perfectly. Seems to be working correctly so far. The only complaint I have is I wish the control unit had the wires coming out on 1 end .. wouldve made it easier to hang is nicely somewhere .. for now Ive just stuck it on somewhere. I didnt find the hook that came with the item very useful but it might fit the needs of others better
Simple By Sergio on 3/6/2012

I bought the 300 watt model and placed it in my 90 gal tank. I’ve been using it for about a month now. With my metal halides I don’t expect to use the heater much during the day, mainly at night. I like how simple it is to use, simply set the digital temp and forget it. I really like that the temperature probe is separate from the heating element. I placed the heating element on intake of my sump and my temp probe in next to my return pump. The unit keeps my temp right where I set it and even sounds an alarm when the water temp gets too high, around 86 degrees F. I found this out while holding the temp probe tight in the palm of my hand for a while testing it the temp probe really worked. Don't know if that’s adjustable but nice to know it’s there.
