I have a 200 watt stealth in my 29 gallon and I love it. My house can get quite cold at night, but it keeps things steady at 78 without a problem. Its black and "stealthy", wont break, and...has a cool name. Go get one.

Thanks for all the replies. I ended up picking up a couple of the Visi-Therms from Petsmart. Got the 50w and the 200w for $18 and $20. Gotta love their price-match policy. They were tagged at like $33 and $35 each. I just printed a page from their website and they matched the prices there.

You took the words right out of my mouth. IMO, the best heaters out there.

I use Visitherms heaters also. Quality work with a good price.

Best one I ever had was a Visi-therm submersible back in the day when submersibles were brand new. It lasted me 10 years and ran like a Swiss watch. I broke it after I forgot to unplug it during a 50% PWC. Silly me.

Replaced it with a Hydor THEO. Less than a year later and it's on the way out. The thermostat is going. I've got it set at 71 (lowest setting) and it's currently holding the water at 78. It's been steadily getting warmer over the past couple months.

I've also got a Hydor ETH in-line. So far, So good and very stable temps.

Finally, Im running a Hydor HyroKablewith a ThermoSET controller. All is well there, too.

The ETH and HydroKable is only a few months old, so we'll see.

There are many good brands out there. Basically I would go with a submersible non glass heater with a thermostat that you can set exact temp. I like the pro-heat heaters , but the visi-therm looks good , too. I think once you find something good then stick to that brand.
