I'm new to heaters, and I just got a the 100W adjustable glass Aqueon heater for a 10 gal tank, but I was doing a bit of research, and I found out that there are heater controllers? They monitor the temp of the water and shut off the heater if it gets too hot. That would be fantastic, because I'm paranoid that my heater will get stuck on and cook my fish.:nailbiting:

What do you know about them? Are there any good ones?
Would I need a heater controller for a Fluval E 100W?

Inkbird ITC-308 goes for around $30 on Amazon and should work well.

I use Inkbird ITC-308S 3 on my tanks for the past 2 years. The S model has a replaceable temp probe so you can replace it if it goes bad. With a multi tap plugged into the heater side of the plug I can run 2 heaters on each tank. Many advantages. The most important to me is that I don't need to relay on the heaters thermostat. I have used unreliable heaters that now work well using the Inkbird ITC-308S.
