Looks great!! Why not put the heater in the right compartment (with the pump) so it's out of the refugium? JMO

Good idea since one may also stop working and it’s better to have a back up. I’d keep the 200 watt & just get another 100 watt to supplement it. Also you might want to buy another brand then the one you have unless it’s very stable. I used to use one heater on my 55 but it varied from 75 to 79 degrees and the second one I bought helps keep it closer to 77 all the time.

they can break and leak voltage into the water... the titaniums are on my list of things to buy in the long list of things to do/replace.
