heating hospital tank

I'm treating a male for internal parasites in a 1.5 gallon tank. I only put 1 gallon in it though. It's getting cooler and I'm noticing my bigger tanks changing temps, so should I heat the 1 gallon? I have a 7.5w nonadjustable heater.

Is it an auto tank warmer? If it is, I think you should especially if the temperature is under 72 degrees or 22.2c. It's better than nothing.

Will your QT tank fit in your larger tank? That's how many of us heat the QT.

Not really, I wouldn't think it would fit in a 10 gallon. It's very similar to this one. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-2-...-Pets/14660256

Mahachai, this is what the heater looks like. I've had it a long time, but it is not something I rely heavily on. It's just for emergencies. I have no idea what an auto tank warmer is.

I just call it autotank warmers because they're usually small heaters that would heat up to about 78 degrees and then stop until it detects that the water is getting cooler and starts up again.
