heaters

I have 125 reef with 7 fishes and 30 gal. symp. My heater broke. But anyway what heater you think is best for my set up? 2- 150w? And what Brent you recommend? Accuracy is important too. Thanks. And since we talk about this, what temperature you keep your reef tanks? My is between 75- 78. Do you think it is too low?

i would use multiple heaters. the idea is if one fails, the others will keep the water temp from crashing until you can find a replacement. the same goes if one heater gets stuck on- a smaller heater won't cook the fish and coral before you can catch it.

So 2- 150w is enough for 125 and 30 gal. sump?

no. i would use 3 of those. put one in the display and 2 in the sump away from each other. if the return pump ever fails, you'll still have a heater in the dt.
