Hi, I am looking for a heater for my 75g. I cant find Aqueons anywhere so I am looking at either a fluval heater or a Ehiem jagger heater. Any thoughts on this Jagger? And what wattage should i get. I am thinking 250-300W. And are these guys fully submersible?

Thanks again beautiful people!! Heck I dont do anything anymore without asking you guys first.

Both are good brands. They should also be submersible. They will say fully submersible on the package. 300w can usually heat a 75 no problem, unless you've got a cold room.

I like the Eheim Jager's (I use them on both of my tanks). Fully submersible and can be calibrated. Only downside is they are quite big (long), and can sometimes be too big. Shouldn't be a problem in a 75 though.

For a 75, I'd go 250W, or the 300W if you have a coldish room.

Eheims are also rumoured to be more efficient than some of the others

I have a 250w Jager in my 75g and it keeps the tank toasty even when I drop my heat down to 64 at night and when I'm not at home for extendrd periods.

If you have a sump I am all about Hydor inline heaters. They are awesome and as accurate as I have ever seen in a heater. My 75 stays dead on always - Hydor ETH 300 In-Line Heater 300 Watt. I am not a fan of glass heaters. They tend to be off where they are suppose to be.

I think the black casing on the fluvals cause a problem because it restricts heat flow to the rest of the tank. I would at the very least monitor super carefully and place a bubbler underneath to distribute the heat.

I like Aqueon Pro, Jager and Marineland Visitherm myself.

Thank you for the advise on that fluval series, very good to know I liked their look but it does not sound worth the hassle. I am going to go with the Jager 300 w ty!
