Cool New Breeding Tank Heater! Questions!

Yesterday, after my failed mistake of adding Betta Revive in overdose to my 29 gallon breeding aquarium, and changing the water, which took hours, I finally got it up to 6 inches.
I am planning on breeding my pair of Katashi and Shichi. I got a heater today, and wanted to know if it was bad.
I have a 29 gallon glass aquarium and a 25 watt Top Fin heater. Is this acceptable?

25 watt may be a little small, even if its just a breeding tank...I'd say 50 watt at least.
But hey, if the 25 watt gets and keeps the water warm enough....

Also, something that might make filling up your tanks a little easier....a gravel siphon that attaches to the sink. I got mine a year ago, I love the thing; it makes water changes in general go so much quicker and it was especially helpful in my 50 gallon.
I wouldn't use it when you have fry; just a regular siphon so you can check in the bucket to see if you sucked anyone up.....but you can use it to full up a lot quicker.

Just a suggestion that might help you save some time ;)
