    Nick, it will all depend on live stock choice. If your going for shrimp only tank then you probaly won't need a heater.

    Cheers Gordon.

    You can buy superfish 25w or 50w heaters which will cost you about £10 it's worth it. If you're running an external filter then a hydor 200w is about £20 or about £9 on ebay.

    Hi Nick

    I'd go with the inline hydor if your running an external filter - as Garuf says, only about £20 - £25 on ebay. It'll give you stability, and the option of more fauna :D
