I've read on other forums that some people use a 100w heater in a 5 - 10 gallon tank with no problems, and that it keeps the temperature constant in the wintertime.........but personally I'd be worried about it cooking the fish while it's heating. I have a 5-gallon and a 25w heater works great.

Gosh, I wouldn't do it. Highest I would go personally in a 5 gal. would be a 50 watt heater with a 25 watt heater being the ideal.
