It was slightly warmer than what it was originally set on (like about 4 degrees), but the fact I could adjust it meant it honestly wasn't a problem at all. Now I'm checking it out in my 5g, and it hasn't let me down yet. The one thing I noticed is it's good to wait a day so the tank has time to completely circulate the heat. I waited a few hours the first time and it was exactly where I set it, but then over night it went up 4 degrees. Although it didn't go up anymore after that.
Mind if I ask what brand? I'm willing to order them if I have to, a lot of the smaller ones aren't always adjustable and that's very important for sure.

xD Yup, I have a 25w hydor theo heater... It's badass, if I do say so myself ^.^ In the 5g it's sitting in now, I have it set on 80, and over night it's gone up to 82. I'm assuming it's not going to go up anymore, though, since that's how it went with my 1.5g, but I'm still gonna keep an eye on it just in case. ANYWAY! Here's the site I got it off of. It was the cheapest I could find with shipping included at the time:

You might still want to browse around online on the off-chance you can find one that's a bit cheaper, but this was the best deal on this heater I found, and it works great ^.^ Just keep an eye on the shipping fees. I found that some seemed like they were a better price, but it turns out the shipping pushed it to where I was better off looking elsewhere.

My new guy Karma's tank. It's a 1.5 gallon. It has a heater but no filter. I plan on upgrading him at some point.

Blush (Left) and Tinkerbell's (Right) tank. There was a plastic cup in the tank because I was about to treat Blush for fin rot.

@Littlebittyfish-Got it at Michael's. It's a little pricey @ $6 a bag but I love it. That is a bag and a half in that tank.

Ok, so I picked up this new guy the other day. Couldn't resist the white with pearl sheen.
I didn't trust him in my Edge due to having 4 guppies so I needed to find him a home quick.
I stopped my Michael's and found this acrylic box. It was sold as a display box for wine bottles.
I laid it flat and cut a big hole in the lid and it is now a betta house.
I am thinking of building an undergravel filter into it.

^ That's a good idea for a tank!

Here's my updated tank, removed the gravel and replaced it with sand today.
