I am looking for 2 heaters for my 90g AGA. They will be placed in my 40g sump so it does not matter what they look like. They just need to be reliable. I like the +/- .5 degree range of the Jager heaters? Can anyone recommend these or tell me how they work or something that is better?

Thanks!

You will get different opinions on this, and this is mine. I have several Jagers from a few years old (green one) to most current (black one). I personally do not care for them. I do however think their older models are more reliable than the new ones as far as keeping stable temp goes. Why don't I care for them, because they don't always turn on when they should, and turn on when they shouldn't. Having said that I went and replaced all my heaters with Finnex titanium using their controller. I've been monitoring it and my temp swing between day and night is no more than 0.6 F. I think that's pretty accurate. Time will tell if I like Finnex or not, but so far I'm happy. Although the Finnex controller seems to do its job, I still want to connect a Ranco to it to be safe. Good luck with your decision.
