well, I would look around, but tetra is the only one I know of that would fit that size of tank... Otherwise I recommend the adjustable heaters (comes I believe in gallons 10/15 and up). I wouldn't put more than one heater in a tank though :)

My worry is that one side won't heat up though, guess ill have to try and check the temp a few times before I throw the receipt away

For sure, i'd use the Elite one I linked to though, because not only is it adjustable unlike the tetra, but it is more reliable. Good luck, and just keep the reciept for a bit.

To be on the safe side, get a thermometer for each side of the tank so you can make sure you're not overheating one side and freezing out the other.

Or, you can use the divider tutorial to make your own divider that won't impede water flow, and should allow your heater to more reliably heat both sides of the tank.

Using craft mesh for instance not only allows air flow through, but lets the temperature stay approximately the same - in comparison to a solid divider :)
