Heating 180 gal?

Iím setting up a 180 gal freshwater aquarium for a stingray and I fully understand I will need to upgrade to a larger tank in 3-5 years but I am looking for heating recommendations for the aquarium. I am running a fluval fx6 canister filter. Iím open to inline heaters or submersible heater but needs to be stingray safe. Iíve had the fluval e300 watt heaters in the past on my 125gal but would like to try and keep as much stuff out of the tank as possible for the ray.

I donít personally have experience in this area... but, correct me if Iím wrong, thatKing of DIY guy on YouTube loves his stingrays and he seems to like using regular submersible lower wattage heaters and putting them in his sump filters to more efficiently heat the tank. Seems to work well. I remember he had one issue years ago where it malfunctions and his rays died Iím sure he figured out how to avoid it now so maybe check out his new stuff?
