Thanks for all of your replies.
Unfortunately, I'm in Santa Cruz now - ambient temps here as of right now are not high enough to keep the tank warm. Although I haven't gotten around to getting a thermometer, the tank temp is probably low 60s to high 50s - it gets cold.
Under-gravel heaters sound great but I am worried about keeping the temp too high on the substrate for shrimp.
Eldachleich, do you happen to know the dimensions on those heaters (I'll do a quick search after posting).
I'll post pics eventually but he tank is far too small for a 6" heater - perhaps even too small for a 4". My ZooMed 501 with sponges for baffling add enough clutter as it is.
I think the DIY inline may just have to be it! I'm in LA for the weekend so I'll poke around before committing to the DIY.
