Getting back into the hobby
While doing my dilligent research before jumping back into the freshwater hobby, I want to gather as much inormation as possible surrounding heating. I plan to use an Innovative Marine Fusion 20 for the tank. I understand it's for "saltwater", but I like the dual intake grates and the flexibility of having a back chamber for filtration. With that being said, I planned to use a 100 watt heater for this system. Where I'm hoping to gather advice is on whether that's large enough? I keep my home at 62 during the work day and at night in the winters, so will this be sufficient to keep the water where it needs to be?
Throwing another piece into this, because of keeping my house at that temp, does it make sense to keep something with a closed top like the Fluval Flex 15? Would this close top cause problems for when I keep the house at 78 in the warmer months due to lack of heat exchange?
Sorry for all the "newbie" questions, but there are a lot of variables I'm playing with at this time!
