Visi-Therm Stealth Heater. What ever you get make sure it's UL listed.

The only reason not to get a Visi-Therm Stealth heater is if you are using a canister filter. In that case you should get a Hydor ETH inline heater.

supra, they arent madew to fit inline like the hydors and rena's are. they incoporate the heating element around a tube which is an intake tube and they just slide onto the heater, I think the rena one works on 1" hob uplift tubes.

You certainly can use a Stealth heater with a canister but it clutters up the tank less, and may be more effective as well, if you use a inline heater. I have Smartheaters on both of my Filstar canister filters and like they way they look and work.
