I am confused. What is the pump for? Do you have a sump as well? How big? What is your head height? If you are putting your heaters in the sump dual 150's will probably be best.

My wife rolls her eyes when I talk about getting another tank

Yeah, to size pumps you'll need to supply more information like how high will the pump have to push the water etc.

As for heaters, I'd got with dual 200 watt ones and I'd go with visitherm stealths.
