I would stray from the marineland heaters, the Stealth Pro line has had some problems lately. When I first started, I used the el-cheapo Top Fin brand heaters that PetSmart carries, they lasted me about two years in my freshy tanks without any problems until I took them down and moved to the salty side. They are cheap, but they work. Might be worth it to just keep one on hand just in case your main heater that you choose to use fails. HTH.
