OK Parallel it is. Your explanation makes a lot of sense John, Thanks. It tends to get somewhat cool in my house at night since we don't use the heating. The coolest it gets is about 55*a couple weeks of the year on those random cool nights, but generally the climate here is mild and the house sits at 60* at night 65-70* during the day. That being known would 600W worth of heating be adequate if I wanted to keep at least 83* in the tank? I do have a 250 EBO that I can throw in too if I had to, but the point is to get all that stuff out of view and being that this tank is not going to be heavily planted... (I say that now LOL)
So I think what I'll do when I do this is have the outlet of the filter go to the C02 reactor and then to the Y which would go to both heaters and then to a Y and back out to the spraybar. I'll set up the inlet on the left side of the tank and the spraybar on the right side. Hopefully this will be enough. Discus are definitely more dirty then the small fish I've been keeping.
