I'm using an Ebo-jager 200 watt on my 75 gal. Awesome heater. It holds the temp. exactly and has a thicker glass tube than most. Of course it hardly turns on any more because of the heat coming off the 220 watts of PC light over the tank.

Yeah, I have the Ebo Jager as well and it is the best heater I have had. I got one step up what was necessary since it was 50 more watts but only like $2 more. I would highly reccomend this heater!
