Reef One is introducing a low voltage heater to its biOrb accessory line next month. The Intelligent Heater is rated for tanks up to 60 liters (approximately 15 gallons) with built in safety features including an automatic shutoff in case the unit is removed from the water. Not only is the unit safer, its quite stylish too with a clean look adding to your entire aesthetic rather than being an eyesore. There aren’t a lot of details on the unit yet, but according to the blurb in Practical Fishkeeping, “Safety is key when water and electricity are in close quarters and our engineering team have developed the Intelligent Heater to address potentially serious safety problems with traditional heaters. Not only is this heater safer and far more accurate than others on the market, it’s also stylish, discreet and the PowerPod allows everything including the heater, light and pump to be neatly plugged into the same supply.” We are big fans of low voltage applications in the aquarium environment and are glad to see a product like this on the market.
