Also use a pair of cobalt neotherms, plugged into my profilux.
for redundancy i have 2 other thermometers in my tank. The current-usa if i am home and if not home my seneye.
If i get a warning from the seneye tank is running hot i turn off the heaters via myGhl.
When i get home i calibrate the profilux.
this has never happened so far, but the thought process behind it.

use the neotherms because of their size.

On the topic of controllers, are there any off the shelf PID controllers available?
I'm curious how the BRS will do over time.
I just started using a finex with a Johnson Controls / Penn controller, steady and always at 77 deg. shrink tube and sealed the probe, using a traceable thermometer the controller is right on the money.

Eheim Jager has been in my tank for 5 years. It's still working great. Best one I've had to date.

One of the most important and dangerous pieces of equipment to use in your reef is a heater! Get a good one and all is well. Get a bad one and you could kill your tank!

In your experience what is the BEST aquarium heater you have used for your reef to date and why?

New to reefing bought a Finnex digital working ok thoughts?
