Ebo-Jager, no doubt in anyones mind! They're the most reliable, accurate and durable submersible heaters out there. Of course titanium heaters are more durable, but they come at a cost. If there's one thing you can't go wrong with, it's an Ebo-Jager!

Ebo Jager heaters are not the same as they were 2 years ago. They are not manufactures by the same company anymore. I think Visitherm makes good heaters. I've used a cpl in my betta spawn tanks for about 2 years now.

Yup.... Almost all of us swore by the Ebo's a couple of years ago, but since they were taken over by someone else, almost all of the same people have had failures since then.

I've moved on to titanium heaters since then, but for such a small tank they wouldn't be practical (nor available). For the smaller tanks I've had very good luck with the Thermal compact heaters.

I've had E-J's for years and never had an issue. Bought one, mind you this os but one, in April. Been using it submerged completly and it has condensation inside.

Also been using the Titanium ones, will keep using them and phase out all the glass ones.
