Ohh I do have a question for everyone though. I've gotten rather used to not havin any heaters exposed in my dt. So could I place my heaters in the overflows? One in each obviously. That way they'd be out of site but still effective. Can't run them in my refugium, suction cups dot like the rubbermaid containers

Heaters in the overflow, why didn't I think of that! I'm going to switch mine when I get home.

Get the magnetic clip holders,they would work even in your rubbermaid containers.

monitor it though, because the water may be moving too fast there, yes you probably can, but if the water is moving fast enough you may have to turn them up to keep them at desired temp.

But wouldn't the flowrate be the same in the refugium? And do they sell magnetic clip holders for the stealths?

The mag clip holders can be used on any heater.See at DrsFosterandSmith. Just place the heater horizontal in your refg,of course below the normal water line.Get two of the clips.
