You could probably get away with a smaller heater than that. 200W seems a little big for 14G. Im pretty sure I use a 125W in my 29G cube, so a 100W would be fine. I just worry about what happens if the heater sticks on.

I use a jager 100w in my bc29 and its more than enough... keeps the tank temp steady.

IMO, go with a bigger one as it can heat the water up quicker, therefore temp swings will be minimized (on the lower end of things anyways). [Caveat: too big and it won't fit in chamber one)

Check nano-reefs.com in the AIO forum... they have threads devoted to this kind of stuff.
