I'm not sure what your price range is. However I strongly encourage that you get a power strip/surge protector.

If you must narrow down to one heater, try to place your heater near or around the output of your filter. Before you spend money on a filter sit down and seriously consider your fish stock. That will determine what is ideal for your set up.

I use a medium size UPS (Universal Power Supply) that provides backup battery for when power fails. Itís the same UPS in size that I use to provide secure power for my home network servers.

How I secured the UPS for the aquarium, I changed out the circuit breaker for a gfi breaker and the installed gfi outlet where the tank is located ( you can identify the circuit by plugging a light into the outlet and flip each circuit breaker off until the until the light is off this will be the circuit breaker to change out and replace with gfi breaker.). at this point you can turn off the power using main breaker in breaker box and replace with gfi including the wall outlet.

Edit by Byron: Threads merged.
I think all of us would recommend you stay with the larger tank. if you have space for it, the larger the tank the better. No matter what we each have, we always find we need more space.
