I’ve recently dealt with some heaters that either overheat, are reading incorrectly, or just have horrible reviews online. What heaters companies and brands do you guys recommend for your tanks?
Heaters tend to break when they are turned on/off too much, or if there isn’t enough flow around them which results in them heating the water too much around their area.
Some good brands include (in my opinion);
Aqueon, Ehemin, Jagex, Fluval.
Some brands that are iffy for a ton of reasons include Marineland and Tetra
I normally stick with Aqueon, Eheim, or Jager since they tend to have better reliability than other brands. I specifically stay away from unknown brands (where I’d love to buy a filter from a random brand name), and tend to avoid Marineland since they seem to always malfunction extremely early which is very annoying (and can shock/overheat the tank dependent on what goes out).

I tend to not look so much at the brand, but ALWAYS purchase ones that are adjustable since the preset heaters are legit trash and always are set either a tad too low or a tad too high.
