What size heater?

What wattage heater would you guys recommend for a 29 gal? I plan on getting a visi-therm, but wasn't sure about the wattage.

I think its usually suggested 5wpg? I could be wrong but i think a 150 watt would be good for you.

Yeah, AN is correct. I would go with a 150W.

A single 150W heater should do the job although you could also consider two 100W heaters placed at opposite ends of the tank. The second option gives you a backup heater in an emergency (if one fails) and more even heating under normal circumstances.
