Re: [AGA Member] Heating Requirements

How about just putting some Styrofoam insulating board under the bottom tank
glass and buying a good heating system with probably at least two 200 W
heating elements and one separate thermostat.  You normally need 2 Watts per
gallon per 5 degrees. (The Innes book 19th Ed.).    I was able to verify
this equation recently when I put a 200W heater in a 20 gallon tank outside
when it was 40 degsF out ( the water went up to 45 degsF).
