200 watt heater for a 55 about right?

Like the title says. Looking at Aqueon Pro heaters for my 55. I'm thinking 200 should be OK, but the 250 watter is the same price. Which is best? I live in FL and our house temps are usually around 75 most of the year, down to 68 or so in colder months of January and February.

I'd say the 200 would suffice in fla, I'd do a 250 in Boston where I am, my tank room was 60 this morning.

I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
