Bought My New Heater

Thanks for all the input on heaters. Turns out I got so many recommendations that I don't think one stood out over the others. In fact for the two brands that got the most positive comments there were also failures reported.

I chose the PROQUATICS Hydrosafe recommended by Mr Leadfoot. His post explains the reason it could be the safest:

BTW I had an interesting thought about the popular theory of using two heaters instead of one to protect against a failure. It's great if one fails off, but you have twice the chance of one failing by sticking on! LOL <
