How To Properly Heat Your Tank

BUY TWO SMALLER HEATERS INSTEAD OF ONE LARGER ONE. Take the size of your aquarium (in gallons), and multiply that by five. This is how much wattage you need in heaters. If you need 600 watts in heating, it is always much better to go with (2) 300 watt heaters as opposed to (1) 600 watt heater. This is due to the fact that if one heater fails, you still have the other to back you up. Also, if one heater sticks on, you will only have 300 watts of heat pumping consistently until the problem is realized, and not 600 watts.
