Is there a alternitive heating

I just had a huge tragedy this week. I had a submersible heater blow in my holding tank. Fried just about all my corals. I want to find a alternative heating system instead of using submersible heaters.
Does anyone now of any?
If not ,how can we avoid this from happening?

Any advice would be helpful......

I'm a FW guy, but I am afraid I don't think there's much choice.

I know there are things you can put under reptile tanks which heat gravel, but I doubt theyd do the same job.

I guess you've just got to purchase a good quality heater and pay attention to its expected life. :/ sorry about your corals.

There are titanium heaters that are not glass. A little pricey, but cheaper than losing a tank full of fish or corals.

Was it a stealth pro by chance?

There are in line heaters for canisters.

With the amount of money we all spend on our fish tanks. I don't see it being a big deal to fork over a few dollars on a heater that won't break. To ease my mind especially the amount of money I just lost on these corals.
