My heater was giving me inconsistent performance so I had to declare my old heater dead. ("Dun, dun, dun... Another one bites the dust...") I had used the heater for roughly three years, so it served me well. Goodbye old friend, there's just no room for error here.
After a short memorial, the search for a new heater started. I wanted something reliable and virtually trouble free. A heater is something you should not take for granted. You may be tempted to cut corners here, but this is something I would strongly caution against. Heaters are important for two reasons: they heat aquarium water to the proper temperature needed and they also keep the temperature STABLE. Stability (of temperature or any parameter) is very essential to any aquarium. Don't choose a heater lightly...
