    Id say a 250W-300W heater should be sufficient.

    They are submersible but not fully, they have a max water level line but it is about 80-90% submersible....its the heater I have, well the 100W model and I have heard lots of good things about em.

    I personally like the fully submersible heaters. But yeah, the heaters Ivan has are good. As for wattage, I'd say the more the better if it is for a sump, less wear on the heater and it won't burn out as fast. Now this is not to say go out and get a 500w, 300 should be sufficient like sniper said.

    Cool

    EBO JABBER heaters are fully submersible. The water line marking is just a CANADIAN safety thang.

    Maybe 2 good 200W heaters would be better as if one fails the other can continue to keeps the water heated. On the other end if they malfunction and stick on it would take longer and give you more of a chance to correct it before it cooks your tank.

    Just my 2 cents.

    That's a good point. Although it does not happen very often that a heater will fail I've heard some bad horror stories of heaters sticking and nuking tanks. Great advice sreist!
