  • Heater for 105 gallon tank

    If it isn't one problem after another.

    My digital heater died, had it for less then one year. Can anyone recommend a heater for a big tank? I currently have a 300 watt heater for tonight but it ain't doing anything.

    Get two large titanium heaters! Those things last forever and can be buried in the substrate.

      Is titanium the brand? Or a type?

        Type. This is what I use. http://www.kensfish.com/moreinfo/fin...controler.html
        External controllers are so much easier than getting wet trying to change the temp.

          300 watts is barely enough to maintain heat in a tank that sized. Do you have any others to add to it? I believe the titanium heaters are made by Marineland. There may be other companies as well.

            That is a great price but it is on backorder... Amazon sells it for $47

              That sucks, when it rains, it pours I guess. I have two 300 watt heaters on opposite ends of my 125 and they handle the temp quite nicely. Although, buried in the substrate with an external control sounds REALLY nice.

                I have two 300watts in my 70g but for my larger tanks I usually have two 500watts.

                  I do have an extra 300 watt heater that I can use until I find a replacement.......I just had the room temperature set at 78 degrees for the night.

                      Most folks I've seen use two heaters in the bigger tanks. I know my salt buddy got the aqueon pro heaters for his 75g and just swears by them now because they've always kept the tank at exactly the temp he sets it to.

                        My next heaters are going to be the ones Jon linked. After curing ich a couple weeks ago I am done adjusting the heater in the tank, I will not do that again!!!! I also like that you can put the heater portion anywhere and all you have hide is the cord

                          I like the idea of adjusting the temp outside of the tank instead of sticking my hand in the tank.

                          Also, how long is the cord to this heater?

                            Mine is really long. I'm sure the link tells you exactly.

                            I also like inline heaters
