I am suprised how warm some people here keep their tanks.
Eheim Jager in two of my tanks.
Eheim Jager for larger tank.
Cobalt aquatics neo-therm smaller tank.
I just bought a Neo Therm 200w and no issues but double checking with the supplier to make sure it's not one from 2013 since those have been recalled per Cobalt..
I think im even more confused now after reading this
That's how I felt when I started. I bought a cheap 400w hydor for my 90 and just plan to replace it yearly.
Finnex controller w/800w titanium heater, also installing jbj controller w/titanium heater for backup...

Aqueon Pro 150W for my 40B has not changed .1 degree since I put it in. 2 months ago. 78.7F since day 1.
Not an eyesore and blends into black painted tank✔
Cheap, but not cheaply made ✔
When 4 T5s are on. No fluctuations✔
Green and red light is not a blinding LED✔
I'm really loving these new Finnex Titanium heaters I purchased for my 400g.
My eheim Jager 300Watt has been on my current tank for 4 years without issue. I was considering another brand (Finnex) but why fix it if it ain't broke?
I ordered 2 X 150Watt Eheim jager for my 2nd tank.
I always thought the ehiem Hagee were the best also. But recently had a heater fail and replaced it with a 300 watt ehiem hacer and it wouldn't keep my 40 breeder at 78 by itself. I also agree about the heater being on a controler. I have the reefkeeper life and love it.
Sorry autocorrect changed jager to who knows
Try the Aqueon Pro 150w for a 40B. Mine is still rock solid at 78.7F for 3 months.
Did you use the red calibration ring? They always have to be adjusted. So whatever your thermometer was reading is what you set the red ring at and then adjust the temp dial accordingly.
I have a Finnex with the digtal display and can't keep temp even when it's over sized for my tank. Now it just for heating new saltwater.
I run one of these units for years 1500Watts and never had it fail.
AquaLogic HTI Series Titanium Inline Heater
I have been in this hobby for over 25 years so I have have been through my share of heaters...I have two 150 Cobalt NeoTherm and they work awesome. I HAVE Them both connected to my Apex!
There was an issue with them leaking but those were all recalled and the new ones are good to go.
I have two 300 watt via aqua titanium heaters (analog version) on my 210. One is the main, one is a backup set 2 degrees below the main. The dials are terribly inaccurate but once they are set, who cares what number the dial is set to? I've had them for 4+ years without issue. The tank is set to 79 degrees. If it hits 81, the Apex shuts it off. If it hits 78 degrees, the apex send me an alert and the backup will kick in. Then I can check the main heater.
I've been running eheim jagers(2 smaller instead of one larger one) set for 81 degrees and controlled by my apex jr to provide a temp of 79 degrees.
The tank I'm currently setting up is going another direction. I'm using a standalone temp controller(similar to ranco) to control 2 300W titantium finnex(sump was too shallow for a jager). It's not running yet so I can't say how happy I'll be at this point.
