with a 55 I would use two heaters I would say 2 200-250 watt would be able to handle the cold basement. heaters can only heat a tank so much before it has to shut off and if the room temp is much cooler than the tank temp than you will need a larger heater to make up for it so if a 200 watt says its good to 55gallons that is IF the room temp is only a few degrees cooler than the tank. if it is a big diverence I always get a bigger heater. I keep my fish room cooler to help keep the humity down so I run 200watt heater in al my 29s and they stay about 82 when my basement is 70 or so.

Thanks Evan. I have a new 250w heater on its way. i'm sure this will help keep the temperature at a stable 79-80.
