Setting up a planted tank .... seems like the only option for an inline heater to keep equipment out of the tank ... but I have a couple of concerns:
1 - they seem heavy - worried it would put a strain on the hose and cause a leak (popping off)
2- Amazon reviews are not good - alot of heaters failing and cooking fish, and / or leaking.
My other option is a cobalt neo-therm heater and just cover it up with plants.
Anyone have any negative experiences with the hydor inline heater? I would be attaching it to an Eheim 2213.
