25w you will want an adjustable one :) it's a nice versatile heater. I'm using mine to heat a 1/2 gallon at the monent.

If you ever plan on upgrading, 50 watt, but if you're not or you want to save some money a 25 watt will work fine. Just don't get the Tetra preset, I have two and they vary so much on temperature, I can't wait to replace it.

The one i am interested in is a Ehiem jager 25 watt but i am unable to find it locally, only the 50 watt version is available locally ,so you are saying i can use the 50 watt version in the 6.6.
