I was looking at getting one last winter, but didn't bother as it was a mild one.

Means we're probably due a cold one?

We always get at least one bad month every winter just which kind of bad...

What about one of these! 500w titanium heaters I use them fully submerged in my salted reef tank they keep the water at a constant temperature and they are safe and strong,


Lol was just gonna say mate I've got two 200w heaters in my 400lt marine tank and they keep that warm no problems so you could alway use two 300w ones also a power head to keep water movemt to help stop any surface freezing

I cannot see why they would not work, I might try it when it gets frosty, just drop them in at night and remove them in the morning to save them getting bashed about with my driving! How long you had your tank camcap and what's in it?
