40 breeder equipment suggestions

Hey all, getting back into the hobby after many years away now that I have a home and won't be moving all the time.

I've purchased a few things so far, but could use a few recommendations on others.

So far I have a new 40 breeder with stand, 60 pounds of mixed flourite substrate for live plants, an aquaclear 75 HOB filter.

Suggestion time:
I am not sure what kind of heater to get, or what wattage anymore. I see a bunch of new brands and styles with attached led temp monitors.
I was looking at the aquaillumination prime freshwater led light for its programmability, and simple bracket mounts.
C02 systems. I used a homemade yeast based system in the past, but the results were always too varied, and want more stability in this next build.

Thanks in advance everyone!

I use the Eheim heater, they've worked great so far. The old rule used to be 5 watts per gallon, so, a 200w heater? Or two at 100w each?

Good to know eheim is still a good brand then. Do you use a controller on yours in case of a heater fault?

Just bought two of the Inkbirds with WiFi, but haven't installed them, yet.
