Heaters question

I am looking for heaters that have a temp gauge on the top, not just a knob to turn. Can't remember who made them, but seen them somewhere on the web.

Thanks, Roger

I'm not sure about a temp gauge on top, but if you're looking for accuracy, the Won Pro Heat II is the way to go. It has a control unit with a digital temp readout and a separate temp control probe. I have used them extensively and have been very impressed with their performance so far. They aren't cheap, but aren't really out of line when compared to other top line heaters either.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Ebo Jagers have a knob with the temps written on it. Pretty accurate too.

I have the marineland visi-therm stealth heater. I included this link because it show the top, but you can get them most anywhere. They are not glass like other heaters, but mine seems to work great. I have it set to 80 degrees in my betta tank, and it keeps the temp steady. The only thing is it doesn't have an indicator light. Good luck.
