won bros 300w titanium with won digital controler !
Eheim Jager Archon controller
Can you say more to above comment about "Ti heater leaking"? Thanks.
I use a 300W Jager in my RO/Salt mixing station, one as a back up on my 120g tank and a 300w Finnex as the main on my tank(Apex controller). All work really well.
I run two heaters on my Apex. One is my main and the second is a backup that will turn on if temp falls below the first setpoint.
I also use 2 Cobalt Neo Therm heaters in my mixed reef as well. I love them! Two thumbs up!
In my opinion you should run two heaters. I ran an inline heater that had built in sensors on its on outlet. But i also had 2 300w heaters running off my Apex. But I had each one on separate EB8's and they were on outlets that were on separate breakers.
Redundancy is key on my opinion. Can't have enough back ups or failsafe when it comes to your tank. Think of all the money and time you invest in it. It is terrible when a $25-$100 piece of equipment fails and you lose everything
I had a won brothers and the temp readout was off by 5 degrees! Unacceptable!
COBALT NeoTherm or COBALT Brand name. Superior construction and unmatched durability, and most importantly an iron-clad warranty that they don’t try to find some excuse to wiggle out of. I have personal experience with two types of their heaters, tempered glass 250watt and NeoTherm 200watt. Just had to replace my heater which broke because I left it out of the water and it overheated. The new ones have a dummy switch that shuts off before overheating.
COBALT's are expensive, but very nice, great quality.
I currently run 4 heaters on my 300. One 300 watt Eheim Jaeger, two 250 watt Eheim Jeagers and a 400 watt Hydor. The 400 & 300 watt ones replaced three 250watt heaters in an attempt to clean up some excess wires. I have another new Eheim 300 watt heater, but they are very long. so my plan is to just go with three 400 watt Hydor heaters.
+1 for Eheim Jager - I've tried others but this is the best of them all.
The best heaters are the Aqueons you can pick up at petco. I don’t use anything but these. They’re solid and keep tank in perfect balance for years!!
Not so. Much a question on Which is "Best" ..
I think there Are Many Great Heaters out there ..And the answeres given are Subjective to individual preferences and Expierence ,
So If I May? ..
What about "Total Heating Power required " ??
My Example is
350 Us Gal Display over a 200 Us Gal Sump ..
Running Outdoors in the Tropics (Thailand) ..
Admittedly Cooling is Normally the Issue ..However this last month we have Expierence Unusualy Cool _/ Cold weather ..
We All know ..or should that Consistency is the goal ..
A 5 + degree C sudden drop or more is Not good ! ..
So for Care Sake
.just how Much "Heating" Power is ideal??
Ment to Expand thread..
+1 Eheim Jager . I have two 300 watt on my 210. Once you get them calibrated they work great!
Eheim Jager on an Ink Bird controller.
How do you have that set up? My Eheim and Ink Bird has a couple degree swings throughout the day and I can not seem to get it dialed in...
The minimum variance is 1 degree. My tank stays at 77-78. Do you have that setting to 1? If you do, then it maybe that your heater cannot keep up with the heating requirements with the lights off? Maybe need higher wattage.
Without the controller in front of me, it's hard to visualize the settings but there is an option in it that lets you choose what the variance is IIRC.
