Heater for 80 gallon with sump

Dillan Murphy

I need a heater for a 80 gallon with a sump. Do I go off of the size tank of the sump or the main tank or the combined amount of water?

I would think you should base it on the total volume tank + sump. And it would be safer to have two heaters that add up to the watts required, rather than just one. In my large tank, about 150 gallons, I use two 300W heaters, one at each end.
