AqueonPro 200 watt is what I would use. I always go bigger then the recommended wattage for the tank size. So a 200 watt they say is good for up to 75 gallons. You could even go with a 250. Your going to set it anyway.
A word of advice. Eventually when funds allow. Get a backup just incase.
Some use 2 heaters, one on each side. I just use one. I have another in place just incase.
