kman I'm picking up an Edge tank shortly (6 gal). So if you want the heater hidden in the HOB, what are the best options right now? Let's stick with adjustable heaters like the OP. The Reno 50w or an Archaea heater?

stella.k Well, I ended up buying the Rena 50W smart heater on marine depot. Got it 1.5 days after ordering *sweet*. If you take off the bottom part - which you don't need anyways - it fits in the filter perfectly.
Has really good reviews and my fish and frog are happy - and so am I.

Thanks!! Been wanting to get a mini heater but the one at AFA I felt was way to expensive, this one looks a lot more reasonable.

Curious what the dimensions of this one is? Is it also 4inches like the other ones like it?

stella.k Thanks for letting me know.
My problem is that i have the white tank, so any heater with black would not look to good against the white background.

Yes it will fit vertically, but as far as a horizontal fit, I've yet to find a way.

I tried bending the cord to fit it horizontally yet it was too difficult since the cord was too rigid.

To me it just seemed like too much of a hassle so I just dealt with it being inside my tank. I do recommend the fluval edge heater if you decide on one, which looks stealthy on the backdrop of a black fluval edge. And just for reference, this is what the archaea heater looks like in my tank (although its in a saltwater tank)
