heater for a 2.5 gallon tank?

I think i need to get my new betta, Ivan, a heater. he mopes around with clamped fins all the time. his tank is only a few feet away from bagel's and they're the same temperature. bagel is fine, but i think he might be used to a bit warmer environment.
so tomorrow i'm going to go look for a heater. any suggestions on what a good one is for a 2.5 gallon tank?

If you can find the kind that there is at this link: http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS...d10wminiheater it seems pretty good...otherwise I usually hate buying anything from WalMart but I've seen little preset Tetra brand ones there.

Eh, dry goods are dry goods. Unless the package is wrecked it doesn't matter if you buy it at Wallyworld or Macys.

I do loathe that place though.
