heater and fliter size

i bought a 10g tank (i think XD) and it came with a 50W heater and a 120vac 60hz. .12amp fliter about a year ago. my roommate killed my fish by dumping febreze in it heartbroken i couldnt bare to get another fish until a few days ago. i have a 1.5g tank for my betta at the moment and ive been afraid to put him in the big one because i wasnt sure if the fliter or heater was to strong for him. ive been keeping my APT. at about 72degrees and i have one of thoses stick on temp. and it says its at 78degrees. anyway my question is the fliter and heater to "strong" for a 10g tank with my betta in it?

5 watts per gallon. Your good.

I doubt there is such a thing as too strong a heater.

I'm not sure about the filter. What is the brand?

she did it on purpose cause she said my fish "smelled" there was 0 odor i had like 15 ppl come and smell and they said they didnt smell anything it was her garbage can. she wouldnt take it out for days i would end up doing it and i didnt even use it. i had just came back from a weekend FTX with ROTC and they were dead. the whole tank smelled like febreze and my 2 fishies were floating at the top ;_;. there is no way my tank would smell that strongly of febreze sooooo i tossed the fish put the tank on the near the window and let it sit, it started to really smell then :D then i put the fish water that had been sitting for 3weeks into her febreze bottle and sprayed her bed and all her clothes :D (her had so many clothes...) then of course being the army chick that i am i would do pushups and stuff and stare at her while i did it, she later moved out saying that i scared the **** outa her XD, my poor little Rukia and Ichigo ;_; atleast i got some revenge for them!!!!!!!!!!

So I have an octagon shaped tank and while reading this postings, I have heard about several heaters. My tank is a 2 gal tank. What would be the best size heater for this one?
