I have two 300w heaters in my 75 gallon. My basement gets really cold in the winter, we don't have it heated. Overkill? yeah. Just make sure you get some quality heaters. No tetra/petco special junk.

Maybe rasbora espei. They're a lot like harlequin's in that they're pretty hardy and stay about the same size maybe a bit smaller. But develop bolder copper color and look overall better IMO.
