Some models can be submerged, some can't. But ebo-jagers are great heaters anyways, I'm sure you wont be dissapointed.

ebo heaters are one of the top heaters out there and can be completely submerged. In the front of the box, it says waterproof/freshwater and saltwater.

I guess I was wrong I've always obeyed the packaging and kept them above the water line. Oh well.

The law in Canada is odd and therefore the packaging states you cannot submerge it. Mine have all been submerged for over a year and old is well. (Hey Endgame, I thought you were off to bed a 1/2 hour ago )

I didnt wanna start a new post about Ebo Jagers but I was suggested by someone on here to get a 300W Ebo for a 55g tank. I saw online that a 200W is good for tanks of 40-60G in size...

Is a 200W Ebo Jager good enough for 55g?

TIA,
Dan

The general rule (that ive always followed at least) is around 2.5 watts per gallon. So a 200w should be plenty for your 55 gal. most experts would recommend two 100w instead of one 200w though. but it's of course up to you. im no expert so i use one.
