Titanium heaters?
I'm looking around to get a new heater for my tank--no emergency, just that all I have is a 100W in a 29 gal tank, which does fine for raising tank temp just a few degrees, but for long-term stability I'd like to get a 150W heater.

Anyways, in the course of looking online at heaters I have noticed some ads for titanium heaters--no glass involved. Anyone ever use one of these? Thoughts?

I dont have any heaters, i use th lights to warm up my tank now-That soon will change. But, i have a friend that has 50+ tiatuim heaters.

Via-Aqua Makes some exceelent ones, i never liekd glass heater due to the fact that thye could shatter. Tiatanuim ones are an exceeltn choice and wont shatter.

I would buy a Via-Aqua 150Watt. Cost Is 18.99 through

I am using a won Brothers Pro Heat II titanium heater @ 250W and let me tell you .. this is just an awesome heater!

Highly recommended ... it has a seperate part that goes into your tank and should be placed at least 12" from your heater (or any heater you have) ... anyways ... this is your thermometer for the heater and on the thermostat, it actually shows the temperature reading of it. it is just awesome!

Go with Won Bros. or Jalli...I have heard of a number of people that have had problems with the Via-Aqua brand.

I use the Won Pro Heat II's on all my tanks and all my customer's tanks. They have been excellent so far. I highly recommend them.

thanks for all the input everyone. Next question is, best place online to order these at the best price?

I've had four URL's recommended in this thread so far. A status report...

1. -- does not exist. If there is a typo, I am not sure what the correct URL is supposed to be here.
2. -- does not exist. Tried "", that just gives a list of other sponsored links., as does
3. -- great site, but they don't list heaters anywhere.
4. -- does not exist. Sure it should be "" The only titaniums they sell are the Via-Aqua ones, which some seem to have problems with.

So while I appreciate all the help in trying to find a good source for these online, so far the help hasn't been entirely that helpful. :roll:
