Heater in canister filter

I was interested in making a pico planted aquarium. However I ran into the problem of where to put the heater. I was thinking of putting it in the diy canister filter. Would this work? If not is there an in-line filter that is 5/16 inch. Thank You for the input

You can build an inline heater that is fairly reliable. YouTube or Google it.

Make it to suit your needs...

Depending on the size of your pico, this ISTA 150W in-line heater might work:

I use a 200W Hydor on my 10G with an Eheim 2211 canister and it works out great.

Another option is to use a betta tank under-substrate heating pad, if your tank is indeed itty bitty.

Hope this helps.

10 gallon aquaponic setup, hydroponic basil, 8 HET rasboras, RCS, red ramshorn snails.
