The ViaAqua 300 watts aquarium heater is a rod-shaped device designed to maintain a constant temperature for water in a medium-sized tank up to 80 gallons. The heater is made with a shatter-resistant quartz glass that can take the pressure and moderately high temperature without breaking or tearing apart. This makes the heater safe for the aquatic life in the aquarium and saves you the money you would need for replacements.
The heater is fully submersible in fresh water and salty water except for the temperature knob that should remain above the water at all times. This is a limitation to people with shallow tanks since there is no way to mount it horizontally and leave the knob safely out of water. However, other than the 300 watts heater, ViaAqua has heaters for various sizes of aquarium tanks, including the 50 watts, 100 watts, and 200 watts.
The device features an easy to read temperature scale built onto the main body of the heater and remains accessible even when the device is put into water. It also has an LED indicator light that lets you know when heating the tank or when the water is at the required temperature. And can you change the temperature setting for this device? Definitely, yes. The ViaAqua 300-watt aquarium heater features a high precision temperature adjustment knob, which you can turn around to set your preferred temperature levels. Further, this heater can be installed easily to the aquarium walls using the provided suction cups that hold it in place throughout the time.
