What would you all recommend in heaters?

Watts per Gallon/Litre

(i am looking at buying a 14L tank and im not sure if its ok to put something like a 25 watt heater in it, the heater can be adjusted to the temp you want)

[14 litres = 3.69840873 US gallons]

I think a 25w should be fine, since 25w is recommended for 5G... On my 10G is recommended 50W, but since 100w from another brand was cheaper than the 50w I bought it instead.. xD!

Somehow there are times I feel the water is kinda colder, specially when I turn the filter off at night, but my thermometer says it's always stable to me... Hmm...

But yah, 25w would work fine for you

adjustable heaters are more reliable in my opinion than the preset heaters... i believe 25 watts should be fine in that tank size..just make sure you keep a thermometer in there to keep an eye on the temperature.

The Hagen Elite mini 25w it is adjustable and takes up very little tank space. Don't bother with the preset heaters I have found they have irregular results.

I had my male betta in a 3 gallon and used a 25watt Elite brand heater. It worked great for two years, but at the end it was having problems holding the temperature steady.
