Small Tank Heaters

So I have two bettas housed separately in two Lee's Dual Betta Hexagon tanks. I'm concerned though because as the weather gets warmer outside, I'll have my air conditioner on and the room temperature will definitely be too cold for them. Are there any good heaters that you would recommend for such small tanks? If not then I'd be willing to upgrade to larger tanks but it may be a hassle to find space in my room!

If the tanks are less then 1 gallon (if I can remember correctly, they are) then I strongly suggest getting a larger tank, at the very least 1 gallon (as long as your water changes are frequent enough), but ideally 2.5g.

For tanks between 1-2 gallons, here are some of your options (I starred the ones I prefer):

- Marineland 10w (suctions to side of tank) *
- Marina 10w (suctions to side of tank) *
- ZooMed Bettatherm 7.5w (flat under gravel)
- Hydor Mini Aquarium Heater 7.5w (flat under gravel)

Thanks! I just found a 1 gallon tank at Petsmart for only $15.00 so hopefully I'll have two of those and heaters by May.

The tetra preset heaters are good for small tanks. It keeps my 2.5 gal at 76F which is good enough. Pretty cheap too - around $15.
