Heaters question

Hello everyone ,
I am helping someone on a betta care and i stuck with a heater question.
So the person will buy either one gall tank or 2-2.5 gall tank.
What are the best heaters for 1 gall and for 2-2.5 gall?
Are there adjustable ones for 1 gall at all?

Now i found this All are shown on the Petsmart website:

biOrb and biUbe Tropical Heater - $7.99
I don't own one of these, but it has good reviews. And the price is excellent!

Marina Betta Heater - $$13.49
I have two of these. They've worked fine and maintain a steady water temp of 79-80F in the 3 gal tanks.

Aqueon 10W heater - $13.99.
I don't have own this, but Aqueon makes a decent product so these should work fine.

Petsmart Grreat Choice Heater - $12.99
I have two of these. They've worked fine, and maintain a steady 79F in my three gal tanks.

Almost Any heater will be okay, as long as it is the right size and it heats the tank at about 80 degrees, give or take four degrees.

I like the 8 watt Marina betta heater. I used it in my 1 gallon but in the summer it brought it all the way up in the 90 degree range so I had to take it out for a few months :o But I do live in a warm area.

For anything larger than a gallon I'd say you want a 25W adjustable heater. They can be used in up to 5g, and since they're adjustable you can make sure the temperature is exactly where you want it- even in a small tank. I have a 50W adjustable in my 1.7g and there hasn't been any problems, so a 25W in a 1g should be just fine.

I would stay away from the 7.5W heaters, since they don't keep a steady temperature at all and depend on your room temp. A preset 10W might work, but there's the danger of it being too warm. Invest in a good thermometer no matter what you go with. :3
