Finnex. Very sturdy and with an Apex it's dead-on.

So after reading a few threads it seems like a Ranco controller with a funnel titanium heater is the way to go. Might just put another on my apex for redundancy. Thanks for the advice.

2 300W finnex titanium's on my 90G. One for main heat, the other as a backup. Both controlled by a ranco, and backed up by my apex. Been rock solid within 1 degree for about 5 years now.

Beginner , last week I went on a rock and was just picking up various items to start my saltwater tank and as I was leaving petsmart I said I need a heater !! I sought out and looked and most I didn’t like then ended up picking up a Eheim 150w ! I have a 36 Bow so I’m definitely over sized but I’m ok with that and by reading quite a few of these comments in the thread it seems I picked a good one and Eheim has a good reputation!

I heard this too, and was told that was when they were new and the problem was resolved years ago.
I have one and used it in a hospitial tank in the basement. When I shut down the AIO tank I hadent noticed that the heater was still plugged in (in the filter compartment ) and after a month with evaporation the heater was partially exposed and still going strong. Still use it when needed.
