RE: [AGA Member] Heater

I don't disagree in general but on the specifics. Our
thermostat is set to 68 F and 200 wpg is fine for my 150g.

The use of two heaters is always a good idea *if* you have
somewhere to put the second, like a sump or large aquarium.
IN a small tank, it's just too much stuff, imo
