Heaters for 120 gal FOWLR

I'm in the process of setting up a 120 FOWLR and am unable to find a single heater to handle the size. FYI I'm starting out with a Eheim 2080 canister so the heater has to go in the tank, do i have to use two heaters or can I get away with one? Any and all recommendations welcome.

Thanx

Yes, titanium shouldn't break and it is salt proof.
I've had my tank drain past the heaters twice and they still work great.
