Question What Watts would be appropriate for this tank?

So I lost my watt conversion table thing I had to find this out, and the ones on the internet are confusing me.

What watts in a heater would be appropriate for a 80L or so tank? The tank brand is Jebo, R338.

Thank you :)

As I can recall, you would need a 100-150 watt depending on how low the ambient room temp is.

My room gets pretty cold at night. Would a 200 watt work? I can't remember the watts of my other heaters and lost the packaging, so I don't know. -_-

I have a 50 watt adjustable for my 10 gallon and it keeps it a toasty 78 for my white clouds, and I have a 100 on the way for my other 10 gallon.. so I'd say higher than 100 for anything more than 10 gallons

it should say the watts right on the heater.. it's the only reason I know the one in my 10 gallon currently is a 50 which I am surprised heats the tank as well as it does.

Thanks :') My other heaters are made by Eheim, and I just found their guide online, and it says 100 watts for 26-40 gallons. I think I might not buy the 200 watts one, I just thought maybe I could, because it's so cheap. Thank you :)

If it is adjustable and you already have it, yes that should be fine.
