In-Line Heater - Which one do you like?

Well I have pretty much everything ready for my new 180 gal tank but the heaters. I don't want them to be visible so I'd like to go with some type of in-line heater. Don't have room in my large wet/dry system either.

Which one(s) should I go with on my 180 gal.

I found these-
Lifegard Heater Modules:

Hydor External Thermal Heaters:

Any others out there or different options??

You can hide titanium heaters behind rocks and even under rocks. You should have no problem with that in a 180 gal.

I agree with DragonForce. I recently purchased a WON titanium heater with digital readout and love it so far. The heater element and thermostat are seperate so they can be placed in different areas of the tank.

Check your pricing. I bought my 250w with digital readout for $30 on sale at LFS.

I have my heaters in my overflows. They're hidden and work great from there.

I have heaters in my sump as well, but they were just not keeping up with the onset of cold weather. Now that I added the WON all has been great.
