Heater size for 10g

I just grabbed a 10g tank upgrading from a 3g. The heater I have does not seem strong enough to maintain proper temp. What is the best wattage for a 10g tank?

I think a 50W would be more then enough. But I have the Eheim Jager 75W just because it was the same price as the 50W on Amazon.

I have a Fluval 50w in my ten gallon. I wouldn't use anything lower than that.

I have a topfin 100W in my 10 gallon for almost a year now, heated it a lot better than my topfin 50W

Thanks.....I ended up getting a 100w Fuval heater as it was only $1 more then the 50w. Now if I upgrade tank size I will have a compatible heater.

I put mine in my 5 gallon betta, working fine. lol But, it feels unfair that my 5 gallon gets topfin heater, and the 5.5 get a hagen submersible. :P
