Submersible VS Hang on

I found a 150 hang on heater under my dads 30 gallon tetra tank. Would this be ok to use for my new 30 gallon? Or should I just spend the money and get a submersible heater?

Another thing, I use salt in my water and I read that salt can cause corrosion to a hang on heater. Is this a problem for me??

I am and always have been a fan of submersibles. The small amounts of salt we use would not damage a hang on. It is basically a warning to not use in salt water. It should work fine though.

My reason for liking submersibles is they can be easily hidden in a display tank, for a breeding tank aesthetics are not of concern ;)

They both work fine but I like my plastic ones better because I have cracked a few glass ones because I forgot to unplug them during cleaning. I certainly wouldn't turn down a hang on one if someone gave it to me though ;)

i tend to like the heaters you can submerge under gravel and such, due to the fact you dont see them hanging in your tank....
