    These new Fluval E Series Advanced Aquarium Heaters have some nice features such as realtime digital temp reading and two monitor alerts that you can set that will give you more piece of mind. I had a tank overheat from a bad heater, so these features are nice to have integrated into your heater. If you have one, please post your feedback.

    Nice! I like the protective guard. Do you have it in your tank yet?

    This would be an easy diy heater protector. It looks like you could take any glass heater, and take a 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" diameter pvc pipe and cut slots in it and cap the end to make the protective case for the heater, and silicon the heater into it for a quick diy project. The digital temp readout is nice to have on the Fluval heater though.

    No not yet Matt. My girl & I are in the process of looking for a new house, so I put my 90 on standby right now. Moving my 29 was a pain, I can't imagine moving a stocked 90gal..

    I'd probably go with 1" PVC the biggest. On the Fluval the protector is in sections that assembly together.

    Bought the 300watt about a month ago and couldnt be happier! Great price under $50 and kicks on when it gets cooler than what we have it set at. No complaints what so ever!
