CO2 reactors can build up a big bubble of CO2 and other gases, often in one day. If you have a heater in there, much of the heater may be in gas, not water, which would cause it to overheat, or shut down. For that reason I don't think combining this reactor with a heater in the same housing would be a good idea.
