I've got two Marina C10's and they are great. 79~80 all day and night.

I've had troubles with the Marina C10, and a lot of the reviews online say that they're not reliable. Sometimes they do work, and sometimes they don't work at all, my past Betta was freezing in his 2g.

I recommend the Elite Mini 25w Heater, this brand makes the best heater. I also like how it's pre-set too, so you can set it to any temperature. I use it right now for my 2g. Keeps the water nice and warm.

That is true. I have seen plenty of bad reviews of the C10. The Hagen is one of the most recommended heaters on this forum. The Hagen is probably your best bet, since it is adjustable.

thank you all for the suggestions! Right now I have Aqueon 10w in with both of my guys. They work great, as long as the ambient temp stays around 72 degrees. Which it does not always do in my room. I woke up this morning and they are both at 68-70 :(

I feel like I'm going to run in to the same problem with all of the 'preset' heaters. Right now I'm trying to control the ambient temp and keep it stable so they don't have drastic changes, but I need something that is going to keep it steady, despite the ambient temp.

Well you can either keep up the ambient temp or find a higher wattage heater. 50 watts may seem like alot more but it will actually work for less time and will keep the temp up.
