    Should I go with the 50w Eheim jager, or the 75w?
    The 50 is rated 7-16 gallons, while the 75 is 16-26 gallons.

    How many gallons is your tank?
    I am running a 200w on a 30 gallon tank, so that gives you an idea.

    I personally like 50 watts per ten gallons of water.

    50w will do, but it will struggle a bit imo. I have 2 in a 20 long and they are on all the time.

    75w is better imo if it's very cold where you live. 50w if its nice and warm.

    Sorry, I didn't see the prefix in the title :)
    I would go for a 75-100 watt heater, that should work fine.

    I live in Florida, so it's hot here. But I have the coldest room in the house.
    I'll go with the 75. Thanks everyone!
