Hi all!

For adjustables i have so far only used Aqueon and Top Fin and had no problems with them(besides my wife frying a Top Fin). I have a couple 200w Marineland heaters on order for a 45g.

Personally i would go with 100-150w adjustable with whatever brand you go with.

I'll look for one in that range.

I like the Fluval E series, they also have a digital readout of the temp right on them, and it turns colors if it deviates from the selected temp. I compare the temp reading to the thermometer in the tank once a day and it’s always spot on.

Really, there is only one way to find out. I have never used it personally, but i have looked at them a few times and seriously considered them. Still may decide on one for some tank or another.
Ok. I think I'll try that one.

Thanks for this. I have the Aqueon Pro150 adjustable heater. And it’s so off on the temp scale on the heater. My thermometer is at least 5-6 degrees below what heater is set on. Scares me sometimes wondering if it’s going to heat more and actually get to “set” temp (88+?) and harm my tank residents. But it stays at 82 per the thermometer. Heater is set on 88.

Going to look into Fluval.

I ended up getting the ViaAqua Quartz 200W heater and it works perfectly. Highly recommend that brand of heaters.
