Heater Help

I have the Aquascene 2 gallon tank. I am currently heating it with the Hagen Radiant heater. I have no idea how powerfull it is but it is pretty big. I didn't buy it, I have had it from previous fish tanks. But it is horrible for small tanks, I will either come home and the tank is like 85-90 or it stays at like 70 and when I try to just bump up the temp a few degrees it will shoot up to 85. I feel so horrible doing this to my beautiful crowntail. What heaters are good for 2 gallons? And possibly are submersible? Thanks!

My heaters are a variety of oddball ones i found on ebay.

This one works well

I have one in a 5 gallon and another in a 3 gallon. Its pretty accurate.

I can recommend the Hydor Theo 25w submersible:

It's adjustable, fully submersible, and small. I own two other brands of heaters and the Hydor is my favourite.

Thanks guys. Well I will tell you what I get next time I go to my LFS. I am not rushing out to get it right now because I can pretty much keep things under control for now you know what I mean?
