Another heater question - Titanium

I have a 37G open top tank.

My present heater is 100W Finnex. It was working well for a long time, but it can't get the temp above 70F now.

Glass heaters aren't what I want in there, too scary for me.

ViaAqua Titanium Aquarium Heater, 100W or 200W because I don't believe there are and 150W appx $45.

and the Finnex HMO-150 appx $40

Also I am not sure where each are manufactured. I emailed ViaAqua, to ask, just a little bit ago.

As a kid we had a catastrophic heater failure and it makes me very nervous when using heaters which could cook my fish. I tend to under size my heaters. :/

Thoughts, opinions and comments welcome.

My only comment is that of the 5 I've bought I don't like any of them so I'm interested in a good suggestion myself. I need one for a 20 gallon, and a 5 gallon.

will check it out.

The ViaAqua email came back, and it is manufactured in China. Only 100W and 200W no 150, he recommended the 200W.

I threw in the Fluval and the temp on the tank is creeping up. I figure can use it as a back up for emergencies.

Still looking for the right one

Keep the conversation up!
