In-line heat is a bit more than this project needs so I should likely just bite the bullet and deal with an ugly heat tube. Maybe I can find something slim that can be hidden amid hair grass or some such.
Maybe a hydor mini heater? Seems perfect for the small tanks you're keeping...and you could still use the HOB filters. However, the flat heaters like that don't have temperature controls which might be an issue since they're shrimp and they like cooler water....hmm. That mini canister does look pretty cool though, haha.
