Eheim also recommended two 150w heaters for my 125 gallon. I should get the two heaters instead of one 250w right?

Whenever you get two heaters I recommend using an external heater controller. Otherwise, variations in the thermostat can either cause one to do all the work or the heaters to be constantly turning on and off.

Excellent point Dalto...

I run my heater with a digital temperature controller available on eBay.. Be careful as many of them are in C, not F.

I set the heater itself to 80-81 and the controller to 76-77. If the controller relay sticks on the heaters will still kick off on their own before cooking everything.
