Hello all --
The heater that I have on my 55 gallon cichlid tank is complete junk and about roasted the fish. I've thrown it out and need to get a new one. I've done some research and it looks like Visi-Therm is a good brand. One heater that really caught my eye was the Fluval E200 heaters. It looks like they're shatter proof and has a nice LCD display for the current water temp. The background for is green when it's within 2 degrees of the set temp, turns red when it's 2+ degrees above, and turns blue when its -2 degrees below the set temp. You can also set it at 0.5 degree increments.
But even though the cool factor for this heater is high with me, I want to make sure it's a good heater. Just because they put some cool features on it doesn't mean that it's a good and reliable heater so I wanted to check with the community before I spent the money on it.
So, whata you guys think of this Fluval E200 heater? If this heater is complete junk, what would you recommend?
Here is a pic of the heater (E50 shown because it's a better pic):
