I've had good luck with Elite mini heaters. I've got a few 25 watt ones that are perfect. It says that they are for up to 5.5 gals but they are adjustable (there's a knob on the top) and I've been able to use them in everything from a 1 gal to a 10 gal. Of course I keep a thermometer in all my tanks and monitor them. It switches off when it reaches the desired heat and then back on when the temperature goes below what is set. It has a little light that allows you to tell if it is on or not.

I've been to petco and saw some of their smaller heaters but none seem to have a thermostat. Reviews have been mixed for these everywhere from not warm enough to boiling.

Well I'm actually looking at one made by Hydor, it's seven and a half watt. Apparently it's meant for fish bowls and the reviews are pretty good.

Why is that? Maybe you know something that I don't about these heaters.
