Depending on your ambient temps 25 could be ok. For instance in the summer where i live it is not uncommon for it to be around 80 degrees indoors, so 25 watts would do just fine. At the other extreme, if you live in the arctic 25 watts might not do it. See where im going with this?

25 watt is pretty small but if it's doing the job then thats what counts. Great to hear the setups working as planned :wink:
