Good quality heater (Asap)
Good heater brand from big als online? Not looking for one of the fancy ones with like a digital thermometer but one that won't just crap out.
They will be from big als since I'm getting some filters there.
I figure 200 watts of 250 should be good?
What is a better brand? or is there a better one around the same price?

I would not go with glass, so the third one and the second one is out IMO. I have gone with stealth for at least 4 years now. Its a quality heater even though there has been some drama. You could always go with the older model of which I have 12 of.

Go with the stealth pro heater. I bought one after my last filter went haywire. I've had it for a year, and even accidently left it out of the tank on for a day and it still works great. They're also plastic so you don't have to worry about it shattering. THe black is also easier to hide

Like I said, follow the link I gave you to the older model of stealth, and get that one. I have 12 of them and they work great.

Petsolutions has 100 free shipping too :) Did you check if big als has the old one?

I would go with the 1st or 3rd one (I would lean more towars the 1st one). I would have said go with the 4th one up until a few days ago. Some people are reporting that the stealth pro is blowing up in their aquariums. Just to be safe I would go with the Reagular Visi-Therm Stealth. The Stealth Pro is probably fine though if you want to give it a try.

Probably could use the extra wattage since my house can get a bit cold.
Any way got 2 of those and also got 4 AC 70s. They were selling some refurbished or returns for only 20 bucks.
Got free shipping and 5 bucks off so only $120.
Now all my tanks in my sig are good with equitment I just have to set um up.
