Question Finnex 500 Watt Titanium Heater System

Does anyone have experience, be it good or bad with this product?

I'm doing more research into heaters for our 120.

Ebo-Jaeger is out of the question. Those new ones aren't completely submersible (if only I could find the old ugly green ones still)

I was considering a Marineland Stealth Pro but the biggest I could find is 300w and that's for 100g.

I reccomend using 2 heaters for such a large tank. If one fails, you have the other one, and the heat will be distributed more evenly. I just purchased a marineland stealth. It's been years since I have had a heater in my tanks, so I can't really advise anything about them except I really like the look and concept of the stealth and def go with completely submergible.

I plan to have a back up, but for start up I'll need one and I have subs in all the tanks. I refuse to use anything else.

Big als aquarium is having a sale on heaters. I think that after you get your substrate and stuff in, your tank will be down to around 100 gallons. Unless you stay were it is very cold, the 300 w should be do a good job.

No offense, but I really am trying to see if anyone has used this brand and type of heater. I do know how to heat an aquarium, but this type of heater I haven't used before and am very interested in.

They used to have a high failure rate (2007/2008 ), but I have not head anything good or bad recently.

If you like the Marineland Stealth Pro, a pair of 300's will give you some head room.
