Anyone use in line heaters?

I am thinking of using an in line heater and keeping the ones I have for back ups instead. I am trying to minimize the crap in my tank. Does anyone have experience or suggestions as to which inline heater works the best?

I second Jason's recommendation, as I also use a hydor. I think I was one of the first to get one (more than 2 years ago), and it's still working perfectly. Remember, the 200 fits 1/2" ID tubing, and the 201 and 300 fit 5/8" ID........I think that's right.

Happy 1000th, Jason

Sistah #1, The Hydors = A++ . Easy street to plumb too. No clamps necessary. I have one in each corner, but I'm stealing one for another tank for a while til I replace it. You'll want the 300 watt obviously and will be enough, unless you like a very cold room.

I love mine, but if I was to knit pick a mounting bracket would be nice.

Ditto, I'm trying to come up with a way to "prettify" this now.
