    I'm in need of a heater for my 55L (12 gallon) tank. My current one is pretty old and has been half exposed to air on numerous occasions and isn't overly accurate. I'm not quite sure what the best wattage for a 55 litre tank would be so if someone could also help me on that, it would be appreciated.

    I've heard Titanium's are good but a lot tend to fail too? I'm not looking to be budget on a heater whether titanium or glass and want the best.

    I read some good reviews about the Eheim Jager glass heaters. Any input?

    Look for a titanium heater with a controller. There are several brands that are decent choices out there, and not overly expensive.

    I have been running 2 Eheim Jager heaters with a Ranco controller for several years with no problems yet. They have been very reliable for me.

    For a 12g I would just go with that neotherm mentioned above. I just got the 50w for my 8g nano i just set up.
    For a non-nano tank i would do multiple titanium heaters hooked up to a controller like Apex.
