Wow...I would be concerned having a 200w heater on a 20g. That seems like an aweful lot of power for such a small tank. I only use a total of 250w on my 72g tank with 120g total water volume. I agree with you that I would worry about it failing and cooking the tank!

The Hydors are incredibe. I really like them. I have the 300 on my 75G with XP3 and it keeps the tank at a very stable temp, almost no fluctuations. Stays within a degree. Also, the 201 is the 5/8" model, and the 200 is the 1/2" model. I'm running the 201 on my 29G with the XP2, and works great. Probably would do just fine on a 20G as well.

Most cannisters have 5/8" hose. Your Rena also does. I use a Jebo 828 cannister that has 1/2" return tubing. The 200 watt model on a twenty gallon will work fine and won't overheat the tank.
