Hydor 50 Watt

Hey all,

Just a quick question. I'm setting up a 5gallon for one of my bettas, and I'm looking for a heater. Would a Hydor 50 watt be overkill? Or should I just go with the 25 watt? The 50 watt is on sale on Amazon right now, and is cheaper than the 25. I can't pass up a deal!!

A 50 watt is fine. Figure it this way: Now you have a reason to upgrade even further.

i use the 50 watt for everything! They work great and are almost always cheaper on Amazon for some reason.

Thanks for all the replies! I went ahead and ordered one. It should be here tomorrow; just in time for me to get my tank all set up! It's good to know it's such a versatile heater! :)
