Yeah, that's what I was thinking :0 well, thanks for the input! I'll look for a good 150w and then move the 100w to the 20 gallon.
Are Aqueon Pros good heaters?

I've never had one. For nor much more you can get the Cobalt. Since I've built a fish area and bought some pricey fish I look at it this way, I'll spend the $45 or $50 to protect $60 fish from cooking but if it's a $10 pair of fish that don't have the potential to make a ton of babies etc like a livebearer then I get a cheaper heater. That's probably really unethical of me but when you are buying like 15 new heaters you have to draw a line somewhere on cost effectiveness. So I'd say if you plan on getting discus or angels or any other fish that costs over $10 each get the best heater. Hospital tank doesn't matter as much because hopefully you don't have to use it a lot. Just how I'm looking at it.

Yeah, I get you Brennae, since I'm a beginner, I'm really only looking for cheaper, hardier fish. The most expensive fish I'm look at is $5 each, but once the whole tank is assembled it probably will be a good chunk of my money.

I'm a college kid with a super part time job so I don't have tons of mpney to throw around, but I've heard good things about the Eiheim Jager heaters so I might look into it since they're only $30 : D !
