I'll be getting a new Betta tank soon, a 25 litre Superfish. I've always used 25w heaters in nano sized tanks before, but this time I've been advised to get a 50 watt.

Do you agree? And if so which heater would you go for? I've looked at the Eheim Jager which, although long seems quite a neat heater, or should I go for the Fluval E50? I've got a E100 in my AR620 tank and its been great, but the Jager comes with a 3 year guarantee which does impress me.

I'd be grateful for opinions

A 25W will be fine for a tank that size. In the unlikely event that a 50W jammed in the "on" position it would make the water too warm and reduce the oxygen content, both of which are harmful to the fish.

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

I used 25W in my nano tanks (25 litres and less) - would have used smaller if I could find a decent one. 50W is way too much!
