Hello everyone ,

I want to do a German Ram theme tank.. I need to be able to heat the water to 82 - 85 degrees. Sump is only 17" wide and I read stories of melting sumps.

What heaters are the best for heating this amount of water - 2 heaters in the same chamber?? recommendations please !

Thank you!

I use 2 x 300watts heaters for my 240 gal tank. They keep the tank at 82 degrees for over a year and a half with no issue. I have a DIY sump made of plastic tub both at the same place. No issue with melting. Make sure they do not touch the acrylic with some kind of spacer.
