whats your opinion on these heaters?
hi all i was just reading a post about thermometers, and it got me thinking about my tanks heater.
I currently have this one:
in a 300watt
I like the fact that it is virtually invisable.
Then i saw this one at the LFS:
i guess its just the newer models of the one i currently have.
My question is does anyone have the "E series" heaters? and what do you think of them?
Does it keep an accurate tempurature reading ?
Are there better heaters than either of these?
I've heard of titanium heaters? what are the pro/ cons of these?
My tank is 100gal , and i live in canada so the temperature of the house varies greatly with the outside tempurature (crappy home heating) and i'm looking thinking maybe i should get a better heater since my current setup varies the temp. +/- 2 degress through out the day.
Thanks for the info in advance!

I have only used the first one you have linked in your post
On my 90 gallon, I am currently using a hydor in-line heater. If you are using a cannister filter then I would suggest trying one of those heaters. As I live just east of you, I can tell you this heater works pretty well in Canadian winters on a 90 gallon tank

i have that fluval m-series 300watt in my 100G tank right now. it's heating up my tank good. but its a bit off around +/- 1C which is understandable as it is the only heater in my 100G.
the only thing that is new on the e-series is that they have digital display of the temperature. not sure about this, but i read somewhere that it turns red if temp is not right and turns green when the temp is spot on.
not sure i would want a green/red light in my aquarium though. but then if you want an easily set heater to the exact temp, then go ahead!

I have the m series works really good. Amazon has them on sale for 1/2 off.
I order a second one but broke during shipment. Waiting for a replacement.
I had the e series but it was dead on arrival. Got my money back on that one.
