Looks like it's made of acrylic. As long as the heater doesn't touch the sides you'll be fine.

So there would be enough flow through it ti heat the tank? My heater does not have to work very hard to keep the tank at 80 now.

Interesting idea ... so your looking to keep as clean a look as possible to the tank and put the heater in the HOB refugium?

Are you planning on putting anything else in the refugium?

A DSB and small amount of LR fore copepods. maybe some chaeto algae for nitrate removal or some red gracilaria to feed the tangs. gonna run it on a reverse light cycle to help combat Ph changes.

Yeah, you'll have enough flow.
