Best tank heater

We are setting up a really nice tank for my best friend and went all ADA. What's the best tank heater you can get for a 10 gallon? We want performance and aesthetics, money is not an issue.

I'm huge fan of the Aqueon Pro line. No glass tubes, they're silent and do a good job. They're not pretty as they're all black, but they can be hidden well.

And they have an excellent warranty.

Use an in-line heater for aesthetics. I don't use heaters (I live in the tropics), but I think most people on the forums use Hydor ones.

I'd also suggest an inline heater with a controller. You will never even know it's there and it won't over heat with the controller.

I also recommend the controller. I have been using Inkbird controllers for awhile. I just got an Inkbird ITC-308 which does both heating and cooling and thus far seems like a nice controller.
inkbird and inkbird like this.
