What heater to get for 6x2x2

Recommended Posts

I am setting up a 6ft tank for americans and am looking at buying stainless steel heaters.I have had big americans before and i had to buy heater guards as they broke one of my glass heaters.Just thought steel would solve that problem and i liked the idea of a seperate thermostat and temp control.just wanted to know if anybody had some feedback on this type of heater.

cheers Leigh

I just got a 1000W titanium heater with a digital controller, there are lower watt heaters of the same kind also.

I have the digital controller on the wall next to the tank, it has the moveable thermostat also. Keeps my tank on the exact temperature I set it to. I got it from guppy's. So far so good =)

Here are the specs from the Eheim Jager page if you're interested. I've converted US gallons to litres for you:

Model #           #          3611   3612   3613   3614    3615     3616     3617     3618     3519
Power consumption W          25     50     75     100     125      150      200      250      300
Aquarium Size     US gallons 5-7    7-16   16-26  26-40   40-53    53-79    79-106   106-159  159-264
Aquarium Size     litres     19-26  26-60  60-98  98-151  151-200  200-299  299-401  401-601  601-1000

Thankfully heaters are more reliable today than ever before - we used to use at least two heaters of lesser rating to warm tanks so that if any single heater got stuck on it wouldn't overheat the tank and kill the fish.

Just got a 300w jager from Russ at Redlands pet store the other day great price call him tho not sure if there's many left was around $59 buck I think on special... It's very long so might not fit in a tank that's smaller then 2ft tall but they r the best I've seen...
