Need inline heater for Fluval 405 + 50 gallon freshwater tank...

Any suggestions? I've been looking at the Hydor 200 or 300 watt heater (but I don't know the proper wattage or if this is the best heater).

I believe the Fluval has a 5/8" hose.

If i remember correctly it does have the 5/8 hose. I have been looking at that heater as well and I think its designed more for the normal aquarium tubing, not sure if it will work with the Fluval hose.

Seems a 300w is recommended for a 55g, but I'd be interested in others input too since I'll be heating my future SW system with an inline too.

300w should be fine for a 55 I would imagine, I was thinking of using 2 of the 200w for my 90 gal not sure if that's overkill or not.
