Gigrantor Posted February 2, 2021 Share Posted February 2, 2021 Good Evening Everyone! I'm in the last stages of building my small tank system. It consists of three 20-gallon tanks that are all on the same homemade sump system. The sump itself is around 25-30 gallons of water. The problem I am currently running into is heating because the system resides in my basement, where ambient temperature is ~66 degrees in the dead of winter. I bought these tanks second hand and they came with 60 watt heaters. However, I have quickly learned these are not going to cut it. I'm looking for some insight or advice to what the most efficient way to heat the system is. Do I just upgrade the heaters to something much more robust? If so, what size? Heat the sump as well so the tank heaters are not overwhelmed? Should I heat the room instead? This hardly seems worth it for 3 tanks compared to how big the basement space is. Thanks in advance, Grant Iowa Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
