Heater help

I've decided to upgrade Jonah from his 1 gallon to a 5.5. Hopefully this will work out better for him and I can keep the 1 gallon for emergencies.

Anyway.

The heater that I currently have in his 1 gallon is only rated for 5 gallons. I really don't want to buy another heater but if I have to, I will. But will this one be okay? Sorry if this sounds silly.

Just watch for fluctuations in the water temperature. When smaller heaters are put into a larger tank, they may not work as well with keeping the water at a constant temperature. Make sure to keep a close eye on it to make sure its doing its job. If not, you'll need to get a new heater.

It should work well! I would get a thermometer (if you don't already have one) that you can keep in the tank at all times just to be reassured that the temp is okay. Place it far away from the heater.
