FWIW the extra 300 watt heater was successful in raising tank temperature to 78 and both heaters now cycle off occassionally, so I imagine I have a little spare capacity. Don't know if I could raise it to 85F, but that would be temporary if needed and I could just stick a Jager in the tank for a while, so my problem is solved. Thanks all for chiming in.
