What do you all suggest? My 200w Ebo-Jager is unable to keep the temp up. I want to be able to raise the water temp enough to eliminate ich.

How big of a tank is it and how much do you need to raise the temp?

The second heater is going to have to be a bigger than the 200 watts you have now. So IMHO you might was well get a bigger heater if you need one. The price difference between a second 200 watt and say a 300 watt is only a couple of bucks.

When we were getting set up I mail-ordered the 200w heater and then we upgraded from a 75 to a 90. A second heater it is. Thanks for the replies.
