For my 10 gal quarantine tank, I use one of small heaters from Wal-Mart that automatically have a temp set. Nothing special, but works if you don't have to have a higher temp than what it is set at.

I'm looking into either buying a 50w Hydor or Aqueon. Both work really good, don't cost much (if you need other supplies you might as well get everything online at bigalsonline.com), and the Aqueon has a limited lifetime guarantee and is apparently shatterproof although I have yet to bang mine against something so I couldn't tell ya :) Both have indicator lights, and once you fiddle with them enough to get the right temp they keep it very well.

This is the song that never ends...

I'd buy whichever one is on sale. It's usually worth paying a tad extra for one with adjustable heat, indicator light and is fully submersible.

Check this one out:

Thank you for the information. I think I may get the one from foster and smith, it looks like a good one!

You can get a visi-therm stealth 50W for about $15. No indicator light but it holds the temp rock steady and is adjustable.
