    Hi Planters
    I am about to purchase a 75watt heater can anyone recommend a quality item.
    I have purchased tetractec in the past the build is good quality, but they tend to stick now and again.
    Looking for something that's a good build more reliable and accurate with shut off included.
    Thanks all

    I second the eheim jager heaters, which I've found to be excellent. That said I've found all heaters to be good so far!

    If you are looking for a nano heater the Eheim Jagers are probably out as they are extra long but also more efficient e.g. a 250w Jager can heat the same size tank as a 300w standard one. Don't know if the same applies at lower wattages. Great heaters though.

    hi
    the tank i have is a small 10l but the newattino i have at the min isn't powerful enough to keep it at a good temp.
    the highest temp i got out of it was around 22-23 but it now only stays in the 19-20.
    i don't know if i should go and get the hydor 200w external.
    the only worry is i don't have much hose on the filter and it wont be vertical but more horizontal, will this be ok??

    Hi,

    I have a quite lot of the tetratech heaters and on the whole I find them quite good and reliable but I have had one faulty one. What I do like about them though is the cable length, 3 metres, which I wish all manufacturers would fit as standard.

    Regards, Chris.
