Atman is one of those direct from Shanghai products of questionable quality. I have no idea if they are good or bad, but I don't see any certification from a testing organization (UL, etc.) so I would stay away.

I have two titanium heaters on a controller in the sump of my 125. There are many brands to choose from, but most quality products will be considerably more than an Atman.
