Thanks! I actually don't even heat my water with a heater I use a giant halogen bulb!
My 90gph pump heats any tank I've put it in up to the tropical temperature range. It brought 50F water in a 5g bucket up to 75f so I could QT a fish. Right now it's keeping a tank of guppies warm. Get a filter and see how much that warms up the water, then go from there. Remember, anything that lives in a reef is perfectly happy between 72F and 82F... I keep all of my tanks without heaters, the pumps and lights keep them warm enough. Even in the winter. Set the tank up, run the filter, then if you still need extra heat, get one of those 25w heating pads. No brand is better than the other by much. I've had reliable brands of heaters to blow up and unreliable brands to be just fine. It's not the difficult.
