I think I might go with a Zoomed 501 and the Archea 50w mini heater. The heater is so small I will just stick it in the tank (although it could probably fit in the filter!).

I wonder if the Zoomed 501 has 1/2 tubing - if so I think a could of disconnects are a good idea. Those have proven handy in my big tank - there always seems to be a splash of water without them
