$300 is a bit high per month, I'm sure your tank isn't the only thing affecting the bill that could be reduced. There are so many variables to that number. My 10 gallon has a HOB, 26 watts of CFL lighting w/ 10 hours per day, and no heater. I keep my heat in the home set on 75 and the temp in my tank is fine. You could use this as a reason to upgrade your equipment. "But MOM, it's more Efficient!!!" That's what I would do.
