Can you elaborate a little more on what you have in mind?

well set one to run the tank, and to use the other heater as a failsafe, maybe set at a lower temperature than the main heater. you see I have never had a reef controller before, I am currently running heaters with there own thermostats I have just bought my aqua medic heaters to run on the reef angel many thanks.

I would save your relays and plug both heaters into one relay. Set it as a StandardHeater and program your on and off temp. Then on the heaters you could put one with a temp a bit higher and one a bit lower.

I always run 2 heaters, if one dies you always have the other one to at least try and keep things warm.
