Are you saying that you took one of two heaters out and the remaining heater is a 200 watt heater and it canít keep a 55 gal. at 82? If so it sounds like that heater might not be working properly. 200 watts should do the job unless your tank is outside in a snowstorm. I would definately get another heater.
It is about 60F downstairs, but yes, I didn't think it was working properly...I never let it run dry, and followed the instructions when installing though.
