Someone will answer that for you, I use 50W in my tanks because that's all they sell here :( But I would assume it's perfectly fine, and submersible is great!

Would you believe my store has 10 bottles of great water conditioner just sitting there, as they don't recommend it to customers. It's one of the top two recommended on here. I'm the only one who buys it!

25w is good, a little overpowered but the smaller lower wattage heaters are too unreliable. just watch it for a couple days to make sure it's working ok.

So my larger tanks (my 29g & my 37g) without a heater only ever cool to about 76.. For that No heater is needed (run the lights all day though so I am sure that helps some). My smaller tanks with no heater or light drop to about 70 after 1 night.. My 2 gallon hex with LED lights stays at about 80..

So no a heater may not be necessarry..

Also this all said I have heaters in all but my 2 gallon hex (the small heaters get that little tank roasting to like 85ish). & I keep real thermometers in each (glass thermometers, not the stick on things).

Ultimately if you dont know for sure that you need a heater then setup the tank & run it for a few days as it will be at the coldest part of the year in your house. If the temp stays at-least 75ish you can get away without a heater. Adding a heater to a tank that stays warm will also not hurt anything as long as its an adjustable heater. it will just sit & take up space, but give you the piece of mind that if your house gets cold your fish will be OK.

It all kinda balances out at five gallons, 25 watt heater and a sponge filter.
