Heater?

I need a new heater for my 2.5g glass tank, and I was hoping someone could share their experience with me. I have a 50w aqueon heater in my 3gal tank, but it is too long to sit unobtrusively in the 2.5g. Has anyone owned either of these two heaters? I'm leaning towards the hydor since it is adjustable, but I would love to hear opinions about either. Thanks!

The Hydor THEO is most preferred in this forum for small tanks. :D The Elite heaters sometimes have some heater snot on that little sphere on the top if it's in the water so, yeah. I also have the THEO and it works like a charm for the desired temperature!

Awesome, thanks for the feedback! I finally got around to ordering the new heater this afternoon, so it should be here in about (hopefully under) a week.

I just got myself a 25 watt Hydor Theo yesterday. It's quite a short heater (a little over 7 inches long), which makes it quite a bit easier to fit into shorter tanks with curved walls (where horizontal positioning may be difficult).
