proof...
This Jar was is under .5g. I kept a newcomer in there for a few days wholst hunting for a new home. it was tall enough to fit the heater. that's all that mattered

How long tell that Jett's gets a bigger tank is it a tempary breeding setup?

I like that set up - very nice!

Anyways, I have used a "250 gallon" heater for an 80. It literally is not the wattage, but rather that it does the job. I find it hard to squish a heater in anything under a gallon xD As long as the heater is adjustable and you have a thermometer you should be fine. Test the heater first in there, adjust it as needed, and there ya go.

he was in there for three days before he got a new tank. he'll eventually be living in a 5 gallon. I have the filter on full blast for him right now. and honestly the current is like a gentle breeze to the plakat

Yes but you also hate anything under 2.5 gallons. I've seen some awesome small setups - maybe because it is the live plants giving it that "look"?

Anyways, I forgot to mention but I would avoid the "bowl heaters" and such direct marketing items like it. They are not adjustable and some do not turn off...
