Large Aquarium Heaters

I'm finally starting my 75 gallon. Now I've heard and read the horror stories of heaters 100W and up getting stuck in the "on" position and frying the fish.

Has anyone used 2 or 3 smaller wattage heaters? I'm thinking maybe 2 50W and 1 25W? Depending on the brand and what wattage goes with a 75 gal. Do you think those may get confusing readings and possibly get turned on too much or even not enough?

What heaters do you use? Wattage and how long? I've barely heard anything good about Top Fin heaters and I'm likely going to be sticking with Hydro Theo and maybe the Ehiem Jags.

Well the heater I linked doesn't seem to last very long. Oh well. Still keeping an eye out.

I'm using a Tetra in my 55 :X Seems to be doing good. The temp doesn't seem to go below 70 unless the house is really cold and then I use my space heater.

I tried looking online but I can't seem to find the one I have. It's an adjustable. I'm 90% it's Tetra brand. The one in my 20gal is an Aqueon.
