Make sure whatever heater you get is ADJUSTABLE. maybe I'm wrong but I've never seen an adjustable one in store for that cheap.

Tank size is a diff. Subject. Adjustable has nothing to do w/ tank size. Adjustable heaters allow you to set it to whatever temp you want. Some heaters (cheaper ones) only allow one temperature which is not what you want. Just read the box; if it says adjustable then it's good. If not- you don't want it.

I'm a little disappointed that you went to PetsMart, bought another betta and another aquarium but you didn't buy a heater for your current betta.

what is pictured is the popular 100W version.
Top Fin has been known to go out, bust open and get stuck on/fry your fish.
