I personally like the aqueon pros. Nice solid build and they keep my tanks stable. I'm running I think 4 or 5 of them right now.

The fluval with the digital readout I don't think is fully submersible, the reason I didn't go with it cause they look really neat.

Amazon is having a sale on the aqueon pros- here is a link

Amazon.com: Aqueon 06107 Pro Heaters Submersible Aquarium Heater, 150-Watt: Pet Supplies

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

A 200 is too big for a 29. I would look at a 100W, which is what Jagger recommends unless the room the tank is in is very cool. A 200W will turn your tank to fish soup if it fails in the on position.

Sure, I love my Aquaeon heater, not a pro one but it does a very good job heating the tank.

Am I like the only one who uses a fluval heater? Lol

They're both nice, reliable heaters. And 100 watt is perfect for a 29.

The shiny silver looking fluval is glass.. i dont like glass heaters. the aqueon pro is composite, which means it won't shatter in the tank if something knocks in to it (if it did, I think that would be the least of your worries). The plastic fluvals just look big and ugly IMO
