Hi all. Been following Melev since his early days.
I am reconstructing a smallish reef tank, around 50 gal including sump. I'm planning on including a controller for this iteration of my tank, and am stuck on the type/brand of heater to include. Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself, but I would like to order one soon. In my last iteration of this tank, prior to the rebuild, I had a heater that I'm not sure ever came on. The pumps and lighting kept it quite warm. This new design is using LED lighting and should be significantly less warm.
Here is the question for the community: I want a heating element that will function flawlessly and not need and integrated heat controller. That is what my aquarium controller is for. Any recommendations?
