Question Best heater for a 5 gallon?

Hello all! I recently purchased a new male betta, and am currently working to get him set up properly. I ordered a 5 gallon tank online and it will be getting here any day now, so I was wondering about a heater for him. I understand it is a necessity, and I want to ensure I get a good one because I know a malfunction could be horrible for my boy. What is a good, reliable heater that will keep him at a steady 80 degrees even though the temperature in my room tends to vary? Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I've heard nothing but great things about this one: http://www.amazon.com/Aqueon-Heaters...rds=aqueon+pro

The smallest one they make is the 50w but that should be fine for a 5 gallon :)

I have a Fluval 50w in my 5.5 gallon and my temperature has never fluctuated. Plus, I find the blue pilot light less annoying since my tanks are in my bedroom.

I have also never heard a bad thing about Eheim Jager. I have one in my 10 gallon and it, too, keeps the temperature steady. Little pricier, but an excellent heater.

I was told a 10W was good for my 2.5g, but I was only able to find 25w ones, which someone recommended on the other thread

Hydor Theo 50 watt. I have two Theos, a 25 watt and a 50 watt, and they'll work in everything from a 1 gallon on up. Great heaters, very compact, easy to clean.
