2 heaters are better for redundancy if one breaks, also having control over temp is nice but personally I wouldn't worry about perfectly even heating in the tank as I believe that having a slight variation in temps in the water allows your fish to find where they are most comfortable. I have 1 300 watt in my 125 and its placed down one end of the tank and is set at about 80, the water on the opposite ranges from 76-80 depending on when the heater last kicked on. I do think that it's a good idea to keep water flowing past the heater so I have my FX5 return pointed at the heater.
