Heater question

Hey everyone, i bought a betta for my neighbor. She saw my betta and she really want one. I didn't buy a heater because she told me that she will put the heater on in her room. Now i understood that the temp in the room is 68*. Betta is fine for now but i am so worry he will get sick . He is in one gallon tank.
My questions is there any good heaters for one gallon ? I am kind of afraid of small heaters . I am afraid to overheat little guy. But at the same time she don't want bigger tank .
Can anyone give me a link please?

I have a Hydor Theo 25 watt running in a 1-gallon right now and it is maintaining the temp at 79 degrees with no problems. I got mine at an LFS but you can order them online from Amazon and Petco (who ONLY carry it online). They're about $30.

I think a few other people on here have 25 watt adjustable heaters in tanks of that size.

Thank you very much . Is the one that you have has a switching knob ? Are you able to change the temperature? My problem that i don't like when temp is above 76*. I like to keep them in 74-76*.

I use all different watts of these.. the minis are about 7" long and adjustable.. the 25w would be fine in a 1 gallon. I use them in my 1.75g conditioning tanks with no issues.
You will just have to make sure the size would fit fine in a 1g.

I use ZooMed 7.5 watt heaters for tanks that size they are at petsmart, look like little dinner plates u can sit in the bottom of a bowl that size, they aren't adjustable, but they generally heat 10* above room temp, mine stay at 78* and never had a problem

Thank you very much everyone for the information now i have an idea. I am going to the store first, to see what they have because i want to give her heater ASAP, and if they don't have it i will have to shop on line .
So i came from the store and i bought 1 Aqueon MiniHeater 10W and 1 MARINA 10W. The Aqueon is for 5 gall though and the Marina for 2.65. I am not excited because i can't control the temperature. So i have spare 2.5 gall at home i am going to full it with one gall of the water and check that heaters. And if i don't like it i will order on line.

Did anyone had experience with those 2?
