Heaters

So, I was reading the care guides, and I'd like to know what sort of heaters you guys would suggest. At the moment I do not have one, but I'll be getting one soon.
I just got my betta yesterday after reading a bunch of stuff on here (and some other places) and I have pretty much everything.
Sorry for being such a Noob xD I'm a leopard gecko/reptile in general person who happens to be a first time fish owner, but any help is appreciated. Thank you~

What size tank is it? The size of the tank determines the size of the heater. I may be wrong on this, but I believe it's 5 watts per gallon.

Its about a gallon and a half or so, and it's a bowl... so, roughly 7-8 watts then? xD

The Marina Submersible C10 heater would do well for you. I think the Elite heater would fry your fish, since they work really well.

I used to use the elite heater for my 1gallon before switching my fish to the 2.5 and it was fine :D
