Heater for 5 gallon tank

What's a good heater for a 5 gallon that you guys recommend, and in general should the heater be 25 or 50 watt? My room temperature is 79 in the summer and 69 in the winter, if that matters.

Which particular tank do you have? Maybe some with the same tank will chime in with their experiences.

It's a 5 gallon bowfront from Tetra, I believe and came as a starter kit. It's just over a foot in length and about 6 inches in width. Height is about a foot maybe.

I prefer the EHEIM Jager heaters. They come in a 50W version, which would be perfect for a 5 gallon tank.

Reliable, tight temperature control, and they can be manually calibrated.
