    not sure, but I reckon a 100W Jager would be good (do not know if your sump is long enough to house it as they are quite long) ..

    the temp doesnt fluctuate as much and is pretty more stable,
    my sump is 580 x 375 x 295

    100w will easily keep this water heated, but be careful, if the heater becomes faulty it can boil your water.

    My preferred brand is the Jager and will fit in your sump

    Yip, it has a thermostat control, not always totally accurate but approximate.
