I'm having trouble finding 25 watt heaters around here. They're all 50 watt and up. I did see a Marineland heater , a 10 watt, in the drsfosterandsmith catalog today, that I might order. I'll have to look for it on their website.

I dont really know xD
Im currently using one of those reptile heat lamps, just hanging it over his little tank.
Works well, keeps his water warm,
a couple of the drawbacks are that he cant have a day/night cycle, and it doesnt always work.
Do you think I should just take him off it?
It will prepare him for his possible upcoming car ride in a few weeks/months.

Right now I have two bettas in 1 gal bowls... its starting to get cold here and they're tanks get in the upper 60s at night... during the day I shine desk lamps overtop.

Im looking at either a hydor mini heater (they're at petco around 20bucks) or a marineland 10w off amazon.com

Both have good ratings.(I just need one as the other fish is going in a 3 gal after qt)

I have a question for y'all... what wattage would you put in a 3 gallon?(I was thinking 25w?)

I use a 25 watt in a 2.5 gallon. I'm glad you mentioned that the Marineland 10 watt has a good rating because I may get one.

I'd go with a 50 watt for a 10 gallon.

You can even get away with a 75w, but you just have to monitor the temps more. Buuut..... since your in florida, a 50w will get the job done very well. Grrrrrr it's so cold here! I'm so jealous. LOL

I just ordered two of the Visi-Therm Stealth 25 watt heaters for my tanks from Big Al's Online. I was on the Canadian Big Al's site, but I'm 90% sure I saw the 25s on the US site as well.

I totally feel your pain, the small Stealths can be so hard to get! Good luck!
