Heater

Is a 8 watt heater good for a 2.5 gallon tank wattage wise?

Yes and no. Yes because it's a nice size but No because it's not adjustable. I know we all can't splurge to get a nice adjustable heater but it might be beneficial to get one in case you run into diseases that need a certain temperature to cure and all. You could easily use a 25 Watt Hydor Theo heater which I use and absolutely love! Also they're just more reliable all around where the heaters under 10 watts tend to heat only +-5 degree's warmer than room temp. So that's fine if your house is always warm but not if you've got a cold house like I do.
