Digital thermostat controller

I am looking for a digital thermostat controller that I am able to plug in 2 heaters which r in my fish tank that will turn on and off simultaneously. I have tried googling it and I either don't know what I'm looking for it how to find it. (I think it's both) I'm pretty sure there is something out there for this.
Thank u.

Most of the less expensive ones only have a single outlet but you can buy an inexpensive power strip or a Y cable at any store. Just make sure they are rated for the power you need to pull.

Heater thermostat control

Does anyone know if I can use a heater that already has a thermostat in it. If not where do I get a heater that is not already thermostat controlled.

You can get heaters that don't have thermostats but you don't need to.

Just set the thermostats on the heaters a few degrees higher than the temperature on the controller. That gives you a safeguard in case the controller fails.

Many of the titanium heaters out there don't have thermostats if you want to go that route.
