Sump heater, main display heater, QT heater... they're all the same. Personally I like the Visitherm heaters. For 95g (20g sump + 75g main) I'm thinking you want at least a couple 150W heaters for a total of 300W... or maybe more depending on your room temperature. I have 2x 100W heaters in my 46g, for comparison.

I like the finnex titanium heaters, no chance of glass breaking.
