    Heaters

    I want to figure out how to heat the 220 I have a 40 breeder for a sump, I would like to run a 800 watt finned but it's 16 1/2" long and might not fit in my sump, does anyone use 2 heaters

    Been running two heaters since I got started. Mostly for fail safe. Have them staged as the tank cools. That way if the first fails it won't boil the tank. Now that I have an Apex an overheat is unlikely but if one does fail at least I have the other. Personally would not run a tank with a single heater. Just my .02.

    Finnex. This is my second set. Original were glass with a remote temperature sensor. New ones are titanium but do not have the remote sensor. Wish they did as I liked that feature but that was removed with their design change.
