Inline heater recommendations?


Looking to get rid of the huge ugly suction cup heater in my 46 gallon.

Any suggestions?

I'm a worry wart, so dead-reliable is my first consideration, not cost.

Advanced canister filters (with built-in heaters) aside, is there actually any other inline aquarium heater offerings on the market besides Hydor?

i also use hydor inline on my 125g but my room stays pretty warm. i also have there under gravel heater in a nano tank. it also seems to work pretty well, although maybe not so well on bigger/taller tanks.

Hmmmm...it's so hard to find any consensus here.

A Hydor 200 it is then.
