    Ibc heating

    Hi guys Iím looking to heat my ibc over winter ,I was looking at using a cloverleaf heater but have heard they are quite costly to run , was thinking about using a couple of 300w fish tank heaters I know itís all about insulation but was wondering what would be the more suitable set up .

    I use 2 x 500watt aquarium heaters s/steel in my grow on controlled by an Elitech digital thermostat works ok for me in 350 gals.
    Would think 1 x 500 watt s/a would be ok for an ibc.
