I use an Inkbird ITC306UK temperature controller. It has various uses including aquarium heating. It has 2 sockets for heaters.

I use a central heating controller with an external sensor... because I work for a company that makes them. There are other reasons though, they (or at least ours) have advanced control algorithms that adapt to the heating characteristics and proportion the heat evenly rather than just cycling on/off. Any external controller will however have advantages over the heaters own thermostat because they are not 'the thing' that is providing the heat and controlling it at the same time and they give an additional level of safety to overheating if a thermostat fails.
