Question Heater Question

Hi all.
I'm in the process of setting up my tank before buying my first ever Betta. I have a talk that is 2.5 gallons. I also have a heater that is 150watt. Can anyone tell me whether that is to big a heater for the size of the tank?
I've been reading through all the information you have here and have learnt so much!

did you mean 150 watt? or 15 watt? 150 is way too much. For a 2.5 I would either get a hydor mini 7.5 watt heater or a small 25 watt heater that has ADJUSTABLE temps... becuase you'll have to keep it down pretty low. I keep a 25 watt in my 3 gal so it should work ok in a 2.5.

I have a 25 watt heater as well. How were you going to fit a 150 watt heater in a 2.5 gallon? Those are huge! Lol.
