CHE for the night?

I wanted to buy a che yesterday for Phoenix so I can discard the purple night light but there were a few different wattages. What would be a suitable wattage for keeping a 75 gallon tank warm at night? Is there a formula for wattage per square foot or inch to go by or just a general rule of thumb that everyone follows?

How cold is the room the tank is in? I'd think the wattage needed would depend on that and on how warm you're trying to keep him. Keep in mind that they should have a chance to cool down some, unless you're in the process of fighting an illness. Also, will you be using a thermostat to control the temp?

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
