I've had one for four years now in a 29g Biocube, with no issues, the problem is their cost. I'm in the process of setting up a 125g, so I want two heaters, but the cost is to me, is redicluos. Two of their highest watt's, 300w for my tank is $280 ! . That ain't gonna happen.Best heater imo is the neotherm heater. If you have a misshap on a water change or something and it comes out of the water it wont bust inside your tank when it touches the water agai.
I know that this is a little old, but having two heaters isn’t because one won’t do the job. It’s so that if one dies, the other picks up the slack.Where are you getting these recommendations? What is the ambient temperature. I have a 210 and the temperature rarely drops below 79 and that is without any heaters. Just pumps.
I'm aware of the reasoning, I do it myself. My point was that he was going to put an 800w heater in a 220 (then corrected it to 500w). I have a 300w in a 210 and it never turns on, even in the winter. 2 Ehiem 1262s act as free heaters!I know that this is a little old, but having two heaters isn’t because one won’t do the job.
