Heater Questions

Im new to betta keeping and got my baby betta not too long ago. It's starting to get cold where I live and was wondering what kind of heater to get for him? I live in a warm region and it doesnt usually get cold but this winter is quite different and I want my little baby betta to be happy this winter and thrive. Any suggestions?

I think it's a little less than a gallon. He's so tiny right now I'm afraid a bigger tank would be too big for him, so i'm looking for a larger tank for when he gets a bit bigger.

For anything 1 GAL or less I recommended a 5W or 8W. These are usually found in most pet stores and can range in price $10-$15 dollars and up. The bad thing about little tanks and heaters is that they don't come with an adjustment temp and are harder to keep constant. However I use the Marina betta mini heater for a 1 Gal tank and it seems to be doing well. Keeps my tank at 78F-80F just monitor it frequently. But there are more heaters available you can keep in mind too
