heater help!!

Hello all, I am a proud owner of a new betta fish and since I bought it I have been researching how to accomadate its needs so it lives a long happy life. I understand that it is ideal to have a heater to keep the water temperature a bit higher than room temperature. I have a 2.5 gallon tank and am wondering what a good heater would be for me. If anyone could share their knowledge it would be much appreciated!!

A lot of people also like the Hydor Theo heaters. I have one and it is great. Some people don't have luck with them but I think it's safe to say you can get unlucky with any heater.

The 25-50w minis are great for small tanks - what I use in my 1-2 gallons. They are adjustable and about as cheap as you will get online at this place.
