For the Kritter Keeper, go with a Hydor Theo 25 watt. They'll work for 1 gallon on up pretty well. I have a Theo 50 watt in my 3 gallon now (but I live in a place where it's often cold, and I don't like my apartment to warm up much). You could do a 50 or 75 watt Theo for the 10 gallon.

Yes the Hydor Theo is adjustable and also completely submersible, i have the 50 watt in my 5.5 gal. It is a little more expensive than other heaters you might see at petco, but really worth it:)

You won't find the Hydor Theo's at PetsMart or Petco (although PetCo does have them on their website to order). A good LFS may have them, or you can order them online from Amazon or Dr. Foster's and Smith.

The smallest adjustable heaters I have seen at PetCo or PetsMart are 50 watt.
