over 3 months of work in a nano canister(subgalon salt water tank)-so far so good

|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?|

Will try and post one. It is still quite empty though.
Haha...I just moved here and got the fishtank before even getting a mattress or any furniture...I guess I am weird

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.

I have the up aqua 25w in my 3gallon.
It has performed decent and I am about to buy another one for my 2.6 gallon.

|devilduck||Love to see a picture of the white tank! You can probably cover the black cable with some white heat shrink tubing to make it less visible.|

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.
First world problems

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)

|stella.k||hmm...can you put it in the section where the filter media are? I mean if you put it in upright? Yeah, looks like the cord is very thick. Would you be able to bend the cord enough so it goes down on one side outside of the filter?|
