brogan Keep the ambient temperature of the room your fish tank is in at the temperature you want your tank to be. You'll never have to worry about a heater failing and boiling the inhabitants.

Re: What is the best heater?

I believe the ebo is the older model. Not quite sure about that, but both are not shatter proof. If there was a Ti Jager heater, I'd be all over that! Finnex sells a Ti heater. There's also Jebo and Won that are good.

Here's a link to more input on heaters.

Re: What is the best heater?

Titanium isn't the brand. It's a type of heater. There's several brands. My LFS sells a 300w one with controller for $40. Forgot the brand name but it's reliable. It's about half the size of a 300w jager, so I can actually put it in my sump.

CrypticLifeStyle I returned my stealths for fluval replacements after the recall. I hate the fluvals now. So glad I traded fish babies for ebo jagers.

Jeffww Aqueon pro series heaters are my favorite. They are constructed the same way as the old stealth pros, made in italy and all. Full plastic body and are pretty durable.

pmcarbrey Ebo jäger are well known for being some of the most reliable heaters available, they are very competitively priced and I have never had one fail on me. If you're going for the best value and dependability ebo jäger is the way to go. There are plenty of more expensive and higher end heaters that also function perfectly well, you've just got to decide what you're going for.

seuadr i like my stealth pros.

In.a.Box No such thing as best heater... I use all kinda of brand heater and like half of them.
I'll recommend aqueon pro since you can buy from any pet store.

GraphicGr8s I like the jagers because they ARE long. I don't like putting my heater all the way at the bottom. I am kind of old school in that I like the adjustment nearer to the top of the tank. But I want the heating element at the bottom. So the long heater let's me have my cake and eat it too.

Kudaria As I'm thinking of replacing a in tank heater as well, what brands of titanium heaters would people recommend?

Re: What is the best heater?

Ebo jager is a great heater, but I have to go with Ti heaters. They're the best and you can't get anything better. Most accurate and shatter proof. Plus comparing a 300w jager to a 300w Ti heater, the Ti is much much smaller and isn't like 50 feet long (extreme exaggeration). Most Ti heaters come with a digital or dial temp controller that doesn't sit inside the tank. Pretty nifty feature.

If you don't want to dish out the extra money, then ebo jager is your next best bet. I have a 300w right now, but I plan on getting Ti heaters to replace it.

Brich999 Liked my titanium heater I'd never worry about it breaking and a controller sets precise temps, but I wouldn't recommend jbj trutemp
