Hey all,

I'm a newbie to the hobby of fish keeping. My husband and I are setting up a 75 gallon tank where we plan on keeping angelfish and other ciclids.

Currently I've been looking around for suggestions on heaters. We already have a filtration system set up and everything, we just need a heater. Problem is that I have been hearing both good things and bad about all the heaters I've been looking at. I know not everything is going to be foolproof but I would still like to get a quality heater that would be good for my tank and keep my fish at the comfortable 78 to 80 degrees.

Does anyone have any suggestions for heaters? Are there some out there that aren't as problematic as some of the ones I've been looking at (been reading horror stories surrounding the Visi Therms)? Thanks for anything you can suggest.

Used to be that Stealth heaters were my go-to recommendation but they all got pulled off the market and I haven't found a good replacement. I think they sent us Visi Therms when we sent our Stealths in for the recall, but I'm not sure. Haven't had a big problem with them, but I find that the one I have in my 125 doesn't seem to put out nearly as much heat as the Stealth did.
