Aqua One ThermoSafe Heater 300W / use 1 or 2 heaters

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I was wondering if the Aqua One ThermoSafe Heater 300W was a decent heater for a 250L tank.
I was also thinking of Eheim. Can anyone give me some recommendations about the size of heater and brand.
Also would you use two heaters or one.
Thanks

Hi There,

I tend to prefer the Eheim, it may cost you a few dollars extra however they heat a larger volume of water using less Watts.

based on what I can see here the Jager 150W heats 200-300L & 200w heats 300-400L - https://www.thetechden.com.au/JAGER_HEATER_200w_p/jg3617.htm

Just ensure, the heater fits in the aquarium.

Thanks for the information. What about thermometers to keep a check on the temp. Are there any you can recommend?

I use a cheap stick on glass thermometer (similar to below) - I put it on the opposite side of the tank where heater is placed.

They are digital alternatives which also are priced reasonably well.

Your local  LFS should most likely have these, I have only used thetechden as a reference.
