What is the volume of the tank?

I have a 200 watt heater in mine and I have no idea how much it is to run, but I haven't noticed a marked increase in my electricity bill!!

Sister in law is running a 100w in a Juwel Trigon 190 and it's doing fine. With your tank only being 106 i think the one you have will be fine. :)

Well it would do... Means more money for them. lol. As long as you have a decent enough filter that will circulate the water well enough then i think the 100w will be fine.
