I would go with the aqueon pro. I'm running like 5 of them and find them to be of good quality and pretty accurate. Just a little pricey, but check out amazon.com for some excellent prices.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

+1 to the Aqueon heaters. Waiting on my other one to get here tomorrow! Amazon does have them very cheap, and they usually have free 2 day shipping. I got a 200 watt for my 20 gallon tank, I think that should be fine IMO.

You don't have to, you can get a 100 watt one if you don't want to spend much, they still keep temp in a 20 gallon.

For 30 cents more, for some reason lol you can get the 150 watt, get it on Amazon, Aqueon pro 150 watt heater. Cheapest price I've seen anywhere.

Good point... I will get that one instead. But what if it makes my tank too warm?
