I had a pro-heat go berzerk. Luckily the therm went on it. Imagine walking into your fish room to find the therm reading 102. I freaked. Of course one touch of the water (what was I thinking, lol... imagine if it really was 102) told me that wasn't right. Turns out that it was not 102 but more like 72 since the heater had stopped coming on. I was one of the lucky ones. A lot of times the go the other way and fry the tank.

I have 2 of those and 2 of the Stealths in my system right now and would love an alternative to the Pro-Heat. I've heard lots of problems with them (of course not until I had a problem with mine, lol). I wouldn't run one on a system without a temperature controller as a backup.

Oh great! I ordered one last night from Ebay! SO who else has had problems with these? I guess there is always someone somewhere that has a bad problem with one thing or another. Im just trying to make sure I dont get a heater that a LOT of people has had problems with.

I have two that I have been using for over 3 years without a problem. I wouldn't worry about it.

I haven't had a problem with the Won-Bros either, it's always a good idea to have 2 incase one fails. Two 300w for a 130 gal is what I’d use depending on how many degrees your tank is off from where you want to keep it. I keep my house at 68 degrees or less all year.

I agree with the 2 heaters. Not incase one fails, but I would think you would have better distribution of the heat in that size tank. I guess if you have real good circulation of water around the heater then one would be ok.
