Betta fish heater

I definitely need a heater for my 1.5 gallon tank...my betta is extremely lethargic.. I was thinking of buying a Marina C10 heater. Has anyone bought it? Is it a good buy?

Yup, I use it, works fairly well. I'm however looking into adjustable heaters and found this one with great reviews: http://www.ebay.com/itm/140722093794...84.m1438.l2649
You never know when you need to adjust your heater and it's better to start off with a really good one so you don't have to buy a new on down the line or so soon after :)
This one is also good too: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270741013706...84.m1438.l2649

Thanks! So 25 watt won't fry my fish right? I wasn't sure whether for the 1.5 gallon tank 25 watts would be too much...

Yeah it should be fine, just set it at the lowest temperature first and work your way up to 78-80. But if you are afraid of it still, you can go with the Marina one, I still use that one in my 3 gallon and for the hospital tank (provided I don't need a high temperature) And I use a different 10 watt heater in my 5.5 gallon as well but that will be getting an upgrade soon too :)
