HOB fuge

Hey folks -

adding a HOB fuge to my tank - my question is if i have 2 200w heaters in my DT right now can i just hang both of them in my fuge or will that be too warm in there or will it be fine since the water will constantly be flowing in and out? Thanks!

how are you gonna get 2x200w heaters in your HOB fuge? How big is this fuge gonna be? There's no problems doing so, but i just dont see how 2 could fit in a HOB fuge.

Imo, i'd just add both to the wet/dry

oh i see lol. I was thinking something like an aquaclear filter instead of a bigger one.

I personally would still just throw em both in the sump. No reason to take up usefull space in a fuge with a heater.
