What are the most reliable heaters these days. I'm leaning towards the titanium type.
Oh wow I’ve never used the pros was thinking about it if one of the normal aqueons stopped working, thanks for sharing your experience I will pass on the pros.Just had another one fail on me. I’ve started relying on Eheim Jager and Aquatops (cheap and have been decent so far). I’ve thrown away WAY too many Aqueons
I’ve had literally 4 of the 300W pros fail lolWith the shatter proof aqueons I have had a lot of issues with the 100Ws but zero out of the 300ws. I think I have 6 of the 300Ws running now without issue. The 100W I have had not work out of the box, and the calibration for them can be a bit of a pain as well. I may try the aquatops for some small tanks I'm setting up soon and see how they do.
The E series is my go to heat treating a tank, the only issues I have had with them was flow rate issues through the cover, but that was a tank issue more than a heater issue.
Lol every heater brand has its issues. I’ve just had poor luck with pros. Just had my 180 spike up to 86 degrees because of a thermostat failure. Usually they stop heating, this one just didn’t turn offLol wow. I guess I have been lucky, they are the ones I keep as spares ( picked up 6 from chewy on sale at 19 bucks a pop a while back) now you have made ma paranoid, gonna unbox and test them all this week end lol

It works well in small spaces, but can be tougher if the space is larger, or wide open. The summer is a fight since we're running AC, but if I close the vent, I don't get enough circulation and humidity goes up, so in the summer I'll rotate the space heater with a fan and dehumidifier. I found out that circuit can't handle the load of both at the same time.Ive been thinking of the space heater approach just to try to keep my basement a few degrees warmer than it is. basement is around 10-12 degrees cooler than I keep most of my tanks.
