Which heater wattage for 65 gal. TiT?
    #3416813 - 11/27/04 07:32 PM (13 years, 19 days ago)

Hey folks... This is probably a newbish question, but I want to make sure...

I was searching through posts for the best heater to buy, and I concluded that the WON Aquarium Heater with seperate sensor and LCD read-out is by far the best one around.

Now I'm trying to decide between a 150w and a 250w. My TiT will be constructed out of two approx. 65 gal. rubbermaids. (If I can find a duplicate of the one I already have, heh.)

Will a 150 w. heater suffice?

I found this on an aquarium site if it helps

Watts Tank Size
25 5
50 10-20
75 5-25
100 10-40
150 20-50
200 25-65
250 65+
300 75+

Do you know what the tank size is being measured in? Gallons?

Edit: Also, I think that is assuming a full container... which my application won't call for. So, since there is another 65 gal. tub inside the 65 gal. tub, it takes up drastically less total volume than 65 gallons.

Edit again: Based on the above logic, I've decided that I should probably go with just the 150w. Anyone want to talk me up to 250w before I buy this? heh...

An aquarium rule is 1W for 1 Liter, equals to 4W for 1 Gallon.

In your case I would choose the 250W or higher, cause once you want to upgrade you dont have to buy a new heater.

But then again in a TIT only a small part will be waterfilled, I would buy the strongest heater anyway, is not much more expensive.

Ok a 150W will suffice... :grin: You can heat up 30 gallons of water up to 86-90F. I think in your tub there wont be that much water.
And I think now you have enough information to decide what to do! :laugh:

Good luck.......

Yeah, I will go with the 150w.. trying to save a little dough whenever possible lately, heh.

Thank you for helping to rest my fears though. :wink:

For tits most heaters will do fine cause there isnt much water between the tubs...
Unless you have real real large tubs...

my 50 watt works excellent. im using the biggest sterilites I could find. at least 80 gallons. People think since you're using 60 gallon tubs you need a heater rated for 60 gallons when that is not true.

How packed do you fill your tubs with jars/casings?

You can't use aquarium sizes.. I mean, aquariums are generally completely full of water. You're only putting a few gallons at most into a TiT.. plus the jars & air inside the 2nd tub.

I have a 50W heating pad, and it is capable of heating my 30 gallon PMP well above 76?F.

That said, I just got a 250W heater for my 30 gallon TiT PMP. The bigger wattage shouldn't matter, the heater will just be on for less time each time it needs to come on.

I also picked up a 200W heater for my TiT incubator. Only using an 18 gallon tub, should work great.

40$ shipped for both on eBay. Both have external temperature sensors and thermostats. :wink:

Exactly!

Pretty nice prices there, too. $46.97 shipped for two 200W heaters. I got the same heaters, 200 and 250W, for $32.06+8.95 shipping, heh.

i don't think anything more then 100watt is needed for any TnT unless perhaps you had a massive one, but even then i bet you could get away with 100w.. it really doesn't have to heat that much.
