Best Heater for a 3.5 gallon tank?

I was wondering what is the best heater for a 3.5 gallon tank. The tank currently only houses 1 male betta, and I was also hoping to get another few fish... So I guess this houses two questions...
1. Are there any tank mates for betta fish?
And...
2. What is the best heater for a 3.5 gallon tank with one betta fish in the tank?
Sorry this isn't the best... It's my first post...
Thanks to everyone who took their time to read!

There are plenty of tank mates for a Betta but not in a 3.5g tank is too small. As for a heater you may have to order online as it is typically difficult to find an adjustable heater for a tank that small. If you look on Amazon you should be able to find one or Google it. I don't have tanks that small so I can't say what is best.

I use via aqua heaters- they are adjustable & have a thermostat, have worked great for me, and best of all, they are super cheap!

This one will work in a 3.5 gallon tank:
